Hometown Heroes: Southeast Louisiana products in MLB, MiLB

Here’s an update for many of the 2021 major-league and minor-league players who prepped or played collegiately in the New Orleans area and southeast Louisiana. All stats are cumulative for the year through Sunday August 1.


It wasn’t a particularly good month for several major leaguers. D. J. LeMahieu hit a dry spell in July where he didn’t hit a home run and had only 6 RBIs. His average dropped to .265. Jake Fraley and Alex Lange were sent to Triple-A after coming back from injuries. Kevin Gausman had three losing decisions in July although was still fourth in the National League with a 2.35 ERA.


Alex Bregman is currently doing his rehab assignment at the Triple A level and should return to the Astros soon. He has been on the Injured List since June 17.


Outfielder Greg Deichmann was traded by the Oakland A’s to the Chicago Cubs, where he could likely get an opportunity soon for a major-league promotion, since the Cubs offloaded major-league outfielders Joc Pederson and Kris Bryant.


Josh Smith was one of three minor-league players the Yankees sent to Texas in a trade for slugger Joey Gallo.


Mikie Mahtook leads the Triple-A Charlotte Knights with 15 home runs.


After being promoted to Triple-A Sugar Land, J. P. France won his first three decisions in July. Shawn Semple posted four wins at the Hi-A level, thus earning a return to Double-A.


Other promotions included Andrew Mitchell to Triple-A; Eric Orze, Nick Bush, and Zach Watson to Double-A; and Hudson Haskin to Lo-A.
