TOMMY LASTELLA RUMORS

Atlanta Signs Basically Tommy La Stella

About two weeks ago, the Atlanta Baseball Club traded second baseman Tommy La Stella away to the Chicago Cubs for a small collection of international bonus slots and also right-hander Arodys Vizcaino. The move provided clues as to Atlanta’s dollar valuation of the aforementioned bonus slots relative to baseball’s free-agent market. What else it did […]

Cubs trade Vizcaino for La Stella

For those of you keeping track, that brings Paul Maholm‘s total value to the Cubs to Tommy La Stella, but we had to throw in some IFA slot money (we got one back to make the numbers work). The trade makes sense to me. Arodys might have a future as a power reliever, but that’s an area the Cubs are flush with. The Cubs are also flush with middle infielders, but you’re deluding...

Cubs Trade for La Stella

The Cubs have acquired 2b Tommy La Stella from the Braves and their #4 international bonus slot for former Brave RHP Arodyz Vizcaino and Cubs international bonus slots #2, #3 and #4. The Braves end up with about $832K more in international bonus money. So with the Braves getting more cash, the silent agreemet between the two clubs is that La Stella was the better bet going forward...

Braves Call Up Top 2B Tommy LaStella

According to many different sources, the Braves have indeed called up second-baseman Tommy LaStella to the big league club.  So far this season, the Braves have had a platoon at second-base with Dan Uggla, Ramiro Pena, and Tyler Pastornicky.  Those 3 players have combined for a mere .165 batting average and only 4 home-runs this season.  The Braves knew before the season that...

Atlanta Braves: Three prospects that can make an impact this year

When the Boston Red Sox came to Atlanta, somewhat surprisingly, it seemed like Red Sox fans actually outnumbered Braves fans at Turner Field. Bear in mind that this was during the Red Sox’ colossal 10-game losing streak when they ranked last in the AL East while the Braves ranked first in the NL East. If that was actually the case, then it certainly says something about fan loyalty...

Streetcar Named Middle Infielder

The Braves called Tommy La Stella up to replace Fuggla. Here's what I said about a month ago, "Incredibly, we already had a Tommy La Stella fantasy post. Don’t you people sleep?! There, Dano compared him to Pedroia and not because he needs his tippy toes to get on a roller coaster. I think that comparison might be a tad bizzonkers. Or as the gentle fantasy writers of our day...

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...

Braves prospect La Stella trying to maintain focus amid attention

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- In the case of Tommy La Stella, career plans rarely hit the fast track. His was a gradual rise littered with second guesses -- up through the college ranks at two different schools, up the draft boards that ignored him twice before, up through the Atlanta Braves' farm system -- but at 25 years old, one final step, or one phone call, is all that separates him...

45 Prospects in 45 Days: Atlanta’s Tommy La Stella

Profile To put it simply, Tommy La Stella is a hitter. His defense projects be around average; maybe a little below. His arm isn’t very good. But he can hit, and that’s probably the best aspect of the game to have as your calling card. La Stella has hit – and hit well – at every level since being drafted by the Braves in the 2011 MLB Draft. During his junior year – his...
