“I think it’s a well-deserved honor for (Gausman),” Maineri said. “Last year Mikie had a great experience with Team USA, and now Kevin gets to have that.”

Gausman will take two starts in the Cap Cod league for the Harwich Mariners before taking off with Team USA.

“Fortunately this summer’s USA tour is rather short, so he’ll be able to shut it down (in early (July) and rest his arm before he comes back to LSU.
