La Stella's hamstring strain is expected to keep him out for 4-to-6 weeks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. La Stella officially landed on the injured list Tuesday after exiting Sunday's game against the Padres with the issue. This timeline means he won't be back with the team until the start of June at the earliest, and possibly not until the middle of the month. Expect Mauricio Dubon and Wilmer Flores to find themselves in the lineup more frequently until he's healthy.
La Stella (hamstring) was placed on the injured list with a left hamstring strain Tuesday. The move was reported as imminent Monday, so it's no surprise to see it go forward Tuesday. La Stella has struggled to a .235/.297/.353 line this season but was still an important part of the lineup against righties. Mauricio Dubon and Wilmer Flores could see increased at-bats until he returns.
La Stella (hamstring) is likely to need a trip to the injured list, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. La Stella left Sunday's game against the Padres with a strained left hamstring. If he does indeed land on the injured list, he'll be out until at least May 13. San Francisco's infield depth is getting tested early, with Mauricio Dubon and Wilmer Flores getting a short-term bump in playing time.
La Stella exited Sunday's game against the Padres due to a left hamstring strain, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. La Stella pulled up while scoring in the top of the fifth inning, and manager Gabe Kapler revealed after the game that the second baseman is dealing with a hamstring issue. The 32-year-old will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury, but Kapler said that La Stella could miss additional time. Wilmer Flores and Mauricio Dubon should fill in at second base if La Stella is unavailable.
La Stella was removed from Sunday's game against the Padres in the top of the fifth inning with an apparent lower-body injury, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. La Stella was examined by trainers earlier in Sunday's game after he appeared to jam his hand on a dive, but he pulled up while running home in the fifth inning and was removed from the game as a result. The exact nature and severity of La Stella's injuries aren't yet clear.
