Braves call up Tommy La Stella

The Atlanta Braves have gotten little to no production from the second base position. On Wednesday the team called up Tommy La Stella from Triple-A Gwinnett.

No corresponding move has been announced. The team could be waiting to see the status of Andrelton Simmons’ ankle.

La Stella, a former eighth-round pick, is a career .322/.407/.474 hitter in the minors and was batting a cool .293/.384/.359 at Gwinnett this season.

Without much power and little running ability, La Stella will need to hit for average if he is to have a impact in Atlanta for fantasy purposes. His defense is considered middle of the road.
