(7/1/14) Braves second baseman Tommy La Stella was removed from Tuesday's game against the Mets due to a right foot bruise, the team announced.
La Stella was hit by a pitch in the second inning and tried to play through the injury, but he came out later in the game after going 0 for 2 at the plate. La Stella believes he'll be fine to play Wednesday, but manager Fredi Gonzalez called La Stella 50-50 for Wednesday's game, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The second baseman has hit .277/.359/.348 with 14 RBI and two stolen bases in 112 at-bats.

(6/29/14) Braves infielder Tommy La Stella was back in the lineup for both games of Saturday's doubleheader against the Phillies, after getting the night off Friday.
La Stella responded to the time off with three extra-base hits Saturday. He went 1 for 5 with a run scored and three RBI in a 10-3 win in Game 1, and followed it up by going 2 for 3 with two doubles and two RBI. He also walked once in the second game, a 5-1 win.
La Stella entered play Saturday hitless in 18 at-bats over his previous six games, so the time off seemed to do him some good. He is hitting .276/.342/.343 in 105 at-bats.

(6/28/14) A lower spot in the batting order seems to agree with Braves rookie second baseman Tommy La Stella. He was raking until he was moved into the leadoff spot, then to second in the order.
Those switches resulted in a 2-for-34 slide that sent his batting average tumbling from .387 to .268. La Stella was moved down to seventh in the order Saturday in Philadelphia and responded with a bases-clearing triple in the eighth inning that gave his team an 8-2 lead.

(6/27/14) Scuffling Braves rookie second baseman Tommy La Stella has been benched for the Friday night game in Philadelphia. His replacement is Dan Uggla.
La Stella hasn't had a hit in his last 17 at-bats, which covers five games. He is in a 3-for-40 slide that has coincided with his move to the leadoff spot and dropped his average from .411 to .271. La Stella has since been dropped into the second hole.
Gee makes impressive return, Mets beat Braves
David Wright ignited a tiebreaking rally in the seventh inning with a hustle double, Travis d'Arnaud gave Dillon Gee some cushion with a two-run drive later in the seventh and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 on Wednesday night for their first four-game winning streak in a year.
Tejada drives in winning run, Mets drop Braves in 11
Ruben Tejada singled home the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning, Curtis Granderson hit a tying homer in the eighth and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Monday night.
Goldschmidt, Miley help D-Backs end Braves' streak
Wade Miley earned his first win since early May, Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Atlanta 3-1 on Sunday to end the Braves' nine-game winning streak.

Braves complete sweep of Mets; winning streak at seven
Chris Johnson hit a three-run double, Julio Teheran pitched seven strong innings and the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 3-1 on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep.
|Tommy La Stella wasn't on anybody's radar until Dan Uggla's impromptu laser eye surgery in mid-August sent everyone scrambling to the minor-league leaderboards to figure out who would take his place. And what they found at Double-A Mississippi gave them little reason to keep searching. The Braves didn't turn to La Stella then, but judging by the rumors of them looking to unload Uggla this offseason, they'll likely give him a shot this spring, especially with his OPS rivaling that of mega prospect Kris Bryant in the Arizona Fall League. A lot of that is on-base percentage -- La Stella's power isn't even in the same ballpark as Bryant's -- but it demonstrates just how thoroughly he excels in that facet of the game. Not only does he make consistent, hard contact, hitting .327 over three minor-league seasons (and none of them in especially hitter-friendly environments, mind you), but he's a walk machine. Granted, that skill set will only carry him so far in Fantasy, but seeing how Matt Carpenter has fared without big-time power or base-stealing ability, you wouldn't want to overlook La Stella, particularly in NL-only leagues.
