  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Takes seat Sunday

    La Stella is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Darin Ruf will handle designated-hitter duties in the series finale while La Stella receives a breather after going 7-for-24 with two doubles, a walk, three RBI and three runs while starting in each of the past seven games. Though he's primarily been deployed as a DH this season, La Stella could be in line for more work at second base over the next week and a half with Thairo Estrada likely to serve as the Giants' main shortstop following Brandon Crawford's (knee) placement on the 10-day injured list.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: On bench versus lefty

    La Stella isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Returns to lineup

    La Stella (back) will bat seventh and serve as the designated hitter Monday against the Royals, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    La Stella had been out of the lineup for the last four games while battling back tightness. The issue is apparently behind him, though it's likely he'll return to the bench Tuesday against lefty Kris Bubic.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Sits again Sunday

    La Stella (back) remains on the bench Sunday against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    La Stella will miss his fourth straight game as he deals with back tightness. Three of those games have come against lefties like Sunday's starter Julio Urias, however, so it's unclear to what extent his absence is injury-related. Luis Gonzalez will be the designated hitter Sunday.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Sits against lefty

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Returns to lineup Saturday

    La Stella (undisclosed) is starting Saturday against the Marlins, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.

    La Stella was scratched from Friday's lineup for an unspecified reason, but he'll serve as the designated hitter and lead off Saturday. Over his last four games, he went 2-for-12 with a double, two runs, an RBI, a walk and a strikeout.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Scratched from Friday's lineup

    La Stella was scratched from the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins for an undisclosed reason.

    La Stella has started against just one left-handed pitcher this year, so it's possible that he was simply removed from the lineup since southpaw Richard Bleier is serving as an opener for the Marlins with right-hander Elieser Hernandez available out of the bullpen. It's not clear whether La Stella is dealing with an injury, but he'll likely be available off the bench if he's healthy. Evan Longoria will serve as the designated hitter while Jason Vosler enters the lineup at third base.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Resting Tuesday

    La Stella will sit Tuesday against the Phillies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Since returning from Achilles surgery in mid-May, La Stella has started against every righty the Giants have faced while sitting against all but one lefty. It's therefore no surprise to see him on the bench here against Ranger Suarez, with Curt Casali serving as the designated hitter.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    La Stella isn't starting Wednesday against the Mets, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    La Stella went 3-for-8 with a homer, four RBI and two runs over the last two games, but he'll get a breather with left-hander Thomas Szapucki on the mound Wednesday. Thairo Estrada will take over at the keystone and bat fifth Wednesday.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Slugs second homer

    La Stella went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run and an additional run in Tuesday's 13-12 win over the Mets.

    La Stella's three-run blast came off Mets starter Chris Bassitt, who surrendered a career-high eight runs before exiting midway through the fifth inning. The lefty-hitting La Stella is likely to remain out of the lineup against left-handed pitching, but he's been productive against righties since making his season debut May 16. Through his first six games, La Stella is getting on base at a .333 clip and has already compiled five extra-base hits.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Sits versus lefty

    La Stella is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    Since returning from the injured list Monday and making his season debut, La Stella played in four of the Giants' subsequent five games and went 4-for-15 with a solo home run, three doubles and a walk. He should remain in the Giants' everyday lineup against right-handed pitching, but the lefty-hitting La Stella will cede second base to the righty-hitting Thairo Estrada on Sunday with the Padres bringing southpaw MacKenzie Gore to the hill.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Sitting against lefty

    La Stella is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Colorado, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Left-hander Kyle Freeland is on the hill for Colorado in the series finale, so the lefty-hitting La Stella will give way to the righty-hitting Wilmer Flores at designated hitter. After opening the season on the injured list while recovering from Achilles surgery, La Stella was activated from the 10-day injured list earlier this week and made both of his first two starts with the Giants as a designated hitter, going 3-for-6 with a home run, two doubles and a walk between the first two games at Coors Field. La Stella is eventually expected to see most of his work at second base once he's further removed from the injury.

  • Giants' Tommy La Stella: Activated and in starting lineup

    La Stella (Achilles) was activated from the injured list Monday and will serve as the designated hitter against the Rockies, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    La Stella underwent surgery on his right Achilles in October. The Giants expressed optimism during camp that he'd be ready to go by Opening Day, but he wound up missing over five weeks before returning for his season debut. He's ready to go after hitting .310 with a pair of homers in nine rehab games and should feature regularly against right-handers going forward.
