    • La Stella has been optioned to Triple-A Iowa, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Chris Coghlan was activated from the disabled list Friday and La Stella was simply the expendable piece in the Cubs lineup. The 27-year-old is batting .308 since returning from a hamstring injury July 6, but has received limited playing time in a crowded infield. A stint in the minors will provide more opportunities for La Stella it's likely he will return to the majors as the Cubs enter the home-stretch of the season, particularly when the rosters expand September 1.

    • Cubs' Tommy La Stella: Activated and starting
      By RotoWire Staff

      La Stella (hamstring) has been activated from the 15-day DL and will start at third base Wednesday against the Reds, Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports. La Stella will bat fifth in the order for his first MLB start since June 7. His presence should essentially phase out Jeimer Candelario, who had been used for sporadic infield reps over the weekend. Prior to landing on the DL, La Stella had posted a .291/.378/.494 slash line over 79 at-bats.

    • Cubs' Tommy La Stella: Activation pushed back
      By RotoWire Staff

      La Stella (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Monday against the Reds. The team had initially planned on a Sunday activation for La Stella, but that idea will have to wait for the time being. Instead, newcomer Jeimer Candelario will get the start at third base, serving as the team's reserve infielder in La Stella's place. A Tuesday activation remains a possibility, but manager Joe Maddon may just be content to roll with Candelario in the short term.

La Stella hasn't seen game action for the Cubs since June 7, but has participated in four rehab games at the Triple-A level, going 4-for-14 at the plate with one home run.
