Brian Keith Mazone (born July 26, 1976) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He most recently played with the Philadelphia Phillies organization in 2010.

Mazone was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Atlanta Braves in 1998 out of the University of San Diego. He had previously played ball at San Dieguito Academy. He played one season in the Braves minor league system, with the Class A Eugene Emeralds. He performed poorly (1-6, 5.53 ERA) in 20 games with the Emeralds and was released.

He went to spring training with the Boston Red Sox in 1999 and the Detroit Tigers in 2000 but failed to make the club, pitching instead with the Zion Pioneerzz of the independent Western League. He led the Western League in shutouts in 2000 and finished fifth in the league in complete games. He missed all of the 2001 season while recovering from an injury.

Mazone returned to action with the Joliet JackHammers of the Northern League in 2002, leading the league in starts, innings and strikeouts. He was picked up by the Milwaukee Brewers after the season and went 0-7 with their Class-A team before he was released and finished the year with Joliet.

In 2004 with Joliet, Mazone finished 1st in the Northern League in shutouts and ERA and 2nd in complete game. He was signed by the San Francisco Giants in August and assigned to AA, eventually finishing the season with the AAA Fresno Grizzlies. He remained in the Giants system in 2005 and then signed a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2006.

Mazone pitched in the Phillies system from 2006–2008, primarily at the AAA level. In 2006, he was selected as the "Most Spectacular Pitcher in Triple-A" by Minor League Baseball and he was selected to the International League mid-season All-Star team in 2008. He also pitched briefly in 2007 with the Samsung Lions of the Korea Baseball Organization. Mazone was nearly called up to make a start for the Phillies on September 5, 2006. However, a rainout changed their plans, and Mazone has never played in the majors.

He was signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2009 and pitched for the AAA Albuquerque Isotopes. On June 30 he was traded back to the Philadelphia Phillies for future considerations. He became a free agent after the 2010 season.
