Manager Gabe Kapler said La Stella (Achilles) will be available off the bench for Game 5 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

La Stella has been nursing the Achilles issue since the final week of the regular season, and he'll step out of the lineup for the final game of the NLDS after tweaking the injury during Game 4 on Tuesday. The 32-year-old may have been on the bench Thursday regardless of the injury, since left-hander Julio Urias will be on the mound for the Dodgers.
