Mazza was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
Mazza has spent brief periods on the Mets' roster this season, recording a 5.19 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP in 8.2 innings of work. He owns a 3.72 ERA in 11 starts for Syracuse but will serve as a reliever in New York. Stephen Nogosek was optioned in a corresponding move.

Mazza was saddled with the loss Thursday evening against San Francisco after surrendering two runs on five hits in the 16th inning. The Mets have recalled Tyler Bashlor and Stephen Nogosek from Triple-A in an effort to get some fresh arms on the 25-man roster.
Mazza (0-1) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Giants after surrendering two runs on five hits in an inning of relief.
Mazza came into the 15th inning and held the Giants to a single by Buster Posey. The right-hander then returned for the 16th frame with a 2-1 lead thanks to a go-ahead home run from teammate Pete Alonso. Unfortunately, the Giants lit Mazza up this time as the 29-year-old failed to record any outs. Instead, he allowed back-to-back doubles, hit a batter with a pitch, and surrendered a pair of singles to give the Giants a walkoff win. Mazza has made four appearances for the Mets this season and owns a 5.19 ERA with a 1.73 WHIP.
Mazza is a candidate to make a spot start this weekend, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The Mets will need to cover for Zack Wheeler (shoulder) for one turn through the rotation, and Mazza was being used as a starter for Triple-A Syracuse prior to his latest promotion. He threw only 1.2 innings in his last relief appearance Friday, however, so if the club does elect to use Mazza, the 29-year-old rookie may not be able to provide much length.
Mazza was recalled by the Mets on Friday.
Mazza has one career big-league appearance under his belt, allowing one run in four innings of work for the Mets in late June. The 29-year-old owns a 3.81 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP in 54.1 innings for Triple-A Syracuse this season. Wilmer Font was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Mazza was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Mazza made just one appearance during his first big-league stint of the 2019 campaign, surrendering one run on five hits while striking out two over four innings Saturday against the Braves. Justin Wilson (elbow) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.
