Pizzano was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 15th round of the 2012 MLB Draft out of Columbia University. He steadily climbed Seattle’s farm system and reached Triple-A in both 2016 and 2017, but spent all of 2018 in Double-A, where he hit .285/.361/.433.
This was merely a depth move, as the Mets’ outfield depth in the upper minors is very thin. In seven minor league seasons, Pizzano owns a career slash line of .283/.363/.434. He is primarily a left fielder, but has also seen time at right field and first base.
Past scouting reports have tagged him with a lack of athleticism that limits his range in the outfield, and has never showed a ton of power, but he should act as solid filler for the Syracuse Mets next season.
