Former LSU Tiger and St. Thomas More standout Mikie Mahtook is in the big leagues.

The Tampa Bay Rays have called up the 25 year old Mahtook as a replacement for John Jaso, who has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Mahtook helped lead LSU to the national championship in 2009.  He had a tough spring training with just three hits in 15 plate appearances.

Hopefully Mahtook will be able to make the most of the opportunity.
