Mazza made nine appearances with the Mets in 2019. The 30-year-old bounced around the Minnesota Twins and Miami Marlins' farm systems before joining the Mets. He posted a 5.51 ERA with 11 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings pitched during his lone MLB season.

This marks Boston's second pitcher signing in the last two days as the team officially announced the acquisition of left-hander Martin Perez on Thursday.
