Gavin Cecchini

Former Barbe standout Gavin Cecchini got the call again on Aug. 17 when he was brought up by the New York Mets from Triple-A Las Vegas. It is the second stint for Cecchini with the Mets this year, having played in five games earlier in the season for New York.

Cecchini, who had a brief four-game stint with the Mets last year, is getting an opportunity this time around. He is batting .273 with a home run and two RBI, having started twice in the last four days at shortstop for the Mets.

Former UL-Lafayette pitcher Danny Farquhar is back in the big leagues after he was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte by the Chicago White Sox on Aug. 19. Farquhar pitched in 37 games for the Rays earlier this year going 2-2 with a 4.11 ERA. He pitched previously for Toronto and Seattle at the Major League level.

Slidell’s T.J. House is back in the big leagues as well, recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Aug. 19 by the Toronto Blue Jays. House has pitched in 18 games previously for the Cleveland Indians from 2014-16. In his first appearance with the Blue Jays, House hurled a scoreless inning against Tampa Bay, striking out one Tuesday night. House was 9-11 with a 4.27 ERA for the Bisons.

After opening the season with the Detroit Tigers, former LSU star Jacoby Jones is back with Detroit, recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Aug. 18.

Alex Bregman homered in consecutive games Aug. 18 and 19 against Oakland. The former LSU All-American has a four-game hit streak (6-for-15/.400) to raise his average to .276 with 30 doubles, five triples, 15 home runs, 48 RBI and 13 stolen bases.

Former Loranger and Southeastern Louisiana ace Wade Miley picked up his seventh win of the season as Baltimore downed Oakland 7-3. Miley allowed two runs on five hits in six innings, walking four and striking out six, using 100 pitches. Miley improved to 7-11 with a 5.11 ERA for the Orioles.

Former Barbe star Wade LeBlanc was placed on the 10-day disabled list by the Pittsburgh Pirates on Aug. 18 with a left quad strain.

At Triple-A Oklahoma City (Los Angeles Dodgers), Newman product Jeremy Bleich is pitching quite well. Bleich is 5-1 with a 2.78 ERA and two saves in 28 appearances for the Dodgers. In 45 and one-third innings, Bleich has allowed just 39 hits while striking out 39 batters.

At Double-A Chattanooga (Minnesota Twins) of the Southern League, former Northshore and LSU right-hander Ryan Eades picked up his third win of the season Monday night, going two innings in a 3-2 win over Mississippi. Eades is 3-2 with a 4.07 ERA in 25 appearances for the Lookouts.

After being released recently by the Cincinnati Reds from Double-A Pensacola of the Southern League, former Baker and LSU speedster Leon Landry is back home. An integral part of LSU’s national championship team under Mainieri in 2009, Landry has been hired as an undergraduate assistant coach by Paul Mainieri for the Tigers.

Former Riverside and Southeastern Louisiana pitcher Tate Scioneaux continues to shine for Altoona (Pittsburgh Pirates) of the Eastern League. Scioneaux has collected saves in his last three appearances for the Curve and now has 14 saves on the season to go with a 6-5 record and a 1.85 ERA in 42 appearances.

At Class A West Michigan (Detroit Tigers) of the Midwest League, former West Monroe star David Burdeaux had a dream game on Aug. 20, going 5-for-5 with a home run and two RBI as the Whitecaps clobbered Bowling Green 15-4. Burdeaux is batting .273 with six doubles, one triple, two home runs and 16 RBI.

At Palm Beach (St. Louis Cardinals) of the Florida State League, former LSU star Chris Chinea went 4-for-5 with an RBI in a 5-2 win over Jupiter Tuesday night. Chinea raised his average to .253 with his big night.

At Clearwater (Philadelphia Phillies) of the Florida State League, former Ouachita Parish and LSU star Mark Laird has a 10-game hit streak (17-for-43/.395) to raise his average to .288 with 14 doubles, two triples, two home runs, 25 RBI and 11 stolen bases.

In Rookie League play, former Louisiana Tech star Brent Diaz is red hot for the Arizona League Brewers (Milwaukee Brewers). In 14 games, Diaz is batting .405 (17-for-42) with five doubles, one triple and six RBI.

For the Gulf Coast League Yankees (New York Yankees), former UNO hurler Shawn Semple is off to a great start to his pro career at 3-0 with a fine 1.50 ERA and one save in 10 appearances. In 12 innings, Semple has recorded 13 strikeouts.
