Hello and happy Wednesday.

The San Francisco Giants should be getting a player back today, as left-handed hitting infield Tommy La Stella is expected to be activated off of the 60-day Injured List.

The Giants have become a very good and very deep team, so it’s hard to find an easy way to get La Stella back on the roster. He’ll need a space cleared for him on not just the 26-man active roster, but on the 40-man roster as well.

La Stella, who signed a three-year deal with the Giants over the offseason, hasn’t played since May 2. He’s only had 75 plate appearances on the year, and is hitting .235/.297/.353. The Giants currently don’t have any left-handed hitters who can play second base, third base, or shortstop, so La Stella’s presence will help the team find the best matchups.
