Cubs recall RP Rosscup, 2B La Stella
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/24/15) The Cubs continued a busy day of transactions Monday, calling up relief pitcher Zac Rosscup and second baseman Tommy La Stella to help fight the team's injury bug, per 670-AM.
Rosscup will help replace the loss of bullpen stalwart Jason Motte, while LaStella will fill in at second while Addison Russell deals with a groin issue.
Rosscup has appeared in 26 games this year, but has not pitched for the Cubs since going on the DL with shoulder inflammation on June 16. La Stella was the team's opening day second baseman, but appeared in just two games before being sidelined with an oblique injury.
Cubs INF Tommy La Stella activated from DL, optioned to Triple-A
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/11/15) The Cubs activated infielder Tommy La Stella from the 60-day disabled list, and optioned him to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday. La Stella was the Cubs' Opening Day second baseman, but he appeared in just two games before suffering an oblique injury in early April. He has been sidelined ever since.
After missing most of the season, the Cubs opted to keep him in the minors to accumulate regular at-bats before possibly being called up later in the season. He went 9 for 36 in 10 rehab games with Triple-A.
Cubs' Tommy La Stella says he ready to begin rehab assignment

Cubs' Tommy La Stella out a month with oblique injury

|(5/19/15) Cubs second baseman Tommy La Stella will miss a month with an oblique injury, per Comcast Sports Net Chicago.
La Stella, already on the 15-day disabled list with a rib injury, injured his oblique muscle while on a minor league rehab assignment at Double-A Tennessee.
Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella injured in rehab assignment
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(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.
|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.
