|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Cubs second baseman Tommy La Stella will miss a month with an oblique injury, per Comcast Sports Net Chicago.

Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella injured in rehab assignment

|(5/18/15) Second baseman Tommy La Stella, who is on a rehab assignment for his injured oblique with the Cubs' Double-A team in Tennessee, re-injured his side after being hit by a pitch Sunday, forcing him to leave the game, per the Daily Herald.
La Stella was slated to be activated this week, but the injury will compel him to return to Chicago to have his right side re-evaluated. He had one hit in two games with the Cubs this season after coming over from the Braves in an offseason trade.

Cubs INF Tommy La Stella (oblique) to begin rehab on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/14/15) Cubs infielder Tommy La Stella, who is currently on the disabled list with a strained oblique muscle, is scheduled to begin his minor-league rehab assignment on Thursday at Double-A Tennessee, according to the Chicago Tribune.
It is not know how many rehab games La Stella will need before rejoining the club. He has been out since the second week of the season with the injury.
Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella not cleared to begin hitting
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) While Cubs second baseman Tommy La Stella has been able to do some throwing and rehab work in the pool, he has not begun hitting, reports MLB.com.
La Stella is on the disabled list with a strained oblique. He has been on the DL since April 9 and is eligible to return.
|2014 summary: A fan favorite before he ever took the field, Tommy La Stella finally replaced a hopeless Dan Uggla in late May, and for his first 16 games, he was exactly as advertised, batting .411 with more walks than strikeouts. But he hit .217 with a ghastly .585 OPS over his final 77 games, ceding more and more at-bats to the inferior Phil Gosselin as time went on.|
Playing time status: Whether because of his poor finish, his subpar defense or the fear of him blocking superior prospect Jose Peraza, the Braves shipped La Stella to the Cubs this offseason, where he'll face even more competition for at-bats. Right now, future star Javier Baez is slotted at second base, but he does have some versatility. Then again, Addison Russell, another big-time middle infield prospect, will probably graduate to the majors this year.
2015 outlook: The Cubs at least appreciate what La Stella does -- or should do -- best: get on base. His patient approach combined with his high contact rate led to a .407 on-base percentage over his minor-league career. The problem is that with little power or speed, he has to hit for average to amount to anything in Fantasy. He has some sleeper appeal, but with no assurances as to playing time, he's just an NL-only option on Draft Day.
