Description: Braves second baseman Tommy La Stella had three hits and three RBI Sunday against the Cubs.
Insight: La Stella has batted .292 in his first 154 major league at-bats, but he has zero home runs and just two steals. While he's a huge upgrade over Dan Uggla and Tyler Pastornicky, he's not a good fantasy option.

Description: Braves second baseman Tommy La Stella will sit after his fifth consecutive hitless game. Dan Uggla will get the start Friday night against Philadelphia.
Insight: La Stella exploded onto the scene, hitting .333 in his first 20 games, but is 1-for-21 over his last six games which isn't a fantasy-worthy level.
 
5/29/2014 3:38:00 PM
Description: Just promoted Braves second baseman Tommy La Stella will make another start on Thursday after going 2-for-4 in his major league debut on Wednesday night.
Insight: La Stella is a career .322 hitter with an .881 OPS and more walks than strikeouts in his minor-league career. He doesn't have much power or speed, but the Braves have received the worst production in baseball from their second basemen (.165/.253/.250).

Description: The Braves have promoted second baseman Tommy La Stella from Triple-A Gwinnett.
Insight: La Stella is a career .322 hitter with an .881 OPS and more walks than strikeouts in his minor-league career. He doesn't have much power or speed but could be a Matt Carpenter type of player. The Braves have received the worst production in baseball out of their second basemen (.165/.253/.250).

Insight: La Stella is a career .327 hitter with an .888 OPS and more walks than strikeouts in his minor-league career. He doesn't have much power or speed but could be a Matt Carpenter type of player. Dan Uggla is on his last legs, batting .190 with two homers this season after hitting .201 with 40 home runs in 971 at-bats the past two years.
