ZZ Cubs Tommy La StellaBy Andrew Green

The Chicago Cubs announced that Cubs infielder Tommy La Stella has joined the Smokies on a Major League Rehab Assignment as he recovers from right rib cage inflammation.

The left-handed hitter previously played in three games for the Smokies earlier this season as part of a rehab assignment between May 15-17, combining for a .200 average (2-10) with two runs scored, one double and an RBI. The left-handed hitter has participated in two contests with the Cubs this season, recording one hit in six at bats.

The 26-year-old in 95 career Major League contests has tallied a .249 batting average (81-325), adding one home run and 31 RBI, in addition to a .325 on-base percentage, and participated in 93 games for the Atlanta Braves last season. The infielder was acquired by the Cubs in a November 16, 2014 trade in exchange for former Smokies reliever Arodys Vizcaino, while the two clubs also swapped international signing bonus slots.
