Jeff Mutis has the distinction of being the last Lafayette baseball player to have played in Major League Baseball, spending his career with the Cleveland Indians and the Florida Marlins from 1991-94. He was selected in the 1988 Major League Baseball Draft as the 27th pick in the first round.


While at Lafayette, Mutis was an All-East Coast Conference selection in 1986, 1987 and 1988. The southpaw led Lafayette to the program's seventh Patriot League regular-season title in 1986 when he garnered Freshman All-America honors. He was also a USA Baseball Team alternate that year. In 1987, he was a member of the Pan-American National Team member. He finished his Lafayette career second in single-season wins (10), fourth in career wins (18), seventh in career ERA (2.89) and innings pitched (218), and fourth in career strikeouts (167).
