After not hearing his name called on Day 1, catcher Jon Denney was drafted 81st overall by Boston.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Mets found a familiar name during the second day of the Major League Baseball draft.

University of Connecticut infielder L.J. Mazzilli, son of Lee, was drafted by the Mets in the fourth round Friday - 40 years after the elder Mazzilli was a first-round pick of New York.

The Yankees also went after famous bloodlines, drafting University of Michigan outfielder Michael O'Neill, nephew of Paul, in the third round.

The wait ended for Jon Denney, an Oklahoma high school catcher who was drafted 81st overall by Boston after being the only one of nine prospects in attendance at the draft site at MLB Network Studios in Secaucus, N.J., on Thursday night not selected.

Rounds 3-10 were held via conference call, with rounds 11-40 to be completed Saturday.
