Tommy La Stella, formerly of the Haymarket Senators (2009) and Chicago Cubs, was traded to the Los Angeles Angels last week.

La Stella is coming off a down year for the Cubs, as he hit 266/340/331 (78 OPS+) in 192 plate appearances in Chicago. However, he is a solid pinch hitter off the bench, and can play both second and third base.

As things stand now, La Stella might be the regular second baseman against right handed pitchers for the Angels in 2019, but much might change over the remaining offseason.
