La Stella (Achilles) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. La Stella underwent surgery on his right Achilles back in October and wasn't quite ready for game action at the start of the season. He'll likely need a fairly lengthy rehab assignment.
La Stella (Achilles) ran the bases Saturday and could begin a rehab assignment next week, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. La Stella has been participating in baseball activities for several weeks, and he ramped up his running intensity this week. It's not yet clear what day his rehab assignment will begin, but it's possible the 33-year-old will be in the mix to make his season debut late next week or sometime next weekend.
La Stella (Achilles) has ramped up his running intensity recently, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. La Stella resumed baseball activities approximately two weeks ago, and it's encouraging that he's now been able to increase his running intensity. The Giants haven't yet provided a timetable for the 33-year-old's return to game action, but it's possible he'll require a rehab assignment since he was also limited during spring training.
La Stella (Achilles) is resuming taking groundballs, hitting and running this week, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. La Stella had been shut down since landing on the injured list last week as he continues his recovery from October surgery on his Achilles. The 33-year-old was also limited during spring training, so he may require a rehab assignment before being able to make his season debut for the Giants.
La Stella (Achilles) said Friday he's considered day-to-day but doesn't have a timetable for his return from the injured list, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The veteran infielder believes scar tissue from his Achilles surgery in October is contributing to his discomfort, and it's unclear when the issue could clear up. La Stella played through the issue after being delayed to start spring training, but the Giants opted to put him on the injured list to begin the season to allow him to get fully healthy rather than having him play part time at designated hitter.
