Braves | Tommy La Stella at leadoff

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 08:50:03 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Tommy La Stella is hitting in the leadoff spot in the team's new-look lineup Wednesday, June 18, with OF Jason Heyward moved to the fifth spot against the Philadelphia Phillies. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he may give La Stella a long look in the top spot. La Stella is hitting .364 on the season. OF B.J. Upton and SS Andrelton Simmons are taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: The move should boost La Stella's value slightly in the run-scoring category as the Braves look to take advantage of his contact and on-base skills. At this point, La Stella should be owned in the majority of leagues.
