Cubs | Tommy La Stella draws into lineup

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 11:53:12 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and is hitting fifth in the wild-card game against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Wednesday, Oct. 7. OF Chris Coghlan will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) can help with salary cap relief in the wild-card matchup on FantasyScore. He's a deep sleeper, though, after hitting .286 (18-for-63) with a home run against righties in limited action this season.

Cubs | Tommy La Stella starting at third

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 12:29:25 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting ninth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Ariel Pena Friday, Oct. 2. 2B Chris Coghlan is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is nothing more than a low-end flier for FantasyScore contests Friday. He has a .263/.328/.404 slash line with three runs, one home run and 10 RBI. Coghlan ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has only started two of the past seven games, so seasonal owners might want to add an everyday player for the weekend.

Cubs | Addison Russell, Starlin Castro sitting

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 11:53:28 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell and 2B Starlin Castro are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29. 2B Javier Baez is starting at the 6 and hitting seventh, while 2B Tommy La Stella is playing second base and batting fifth against Cincinnati Reds SP Josh Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Baez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is the much more attractive daily pick tonight as a value play than La Stella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) as a deep sleeper. Smith has allowed seven earned runs in only nine innings in his last two starts against the Milwaukee Brewers and New York Mets.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo with a rare off day

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:22:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo is taking the day off Monday, Sept. 28. 3B Kris Bryant moves across the diamond to first base, while 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and is hitting cleanup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is a deep sleeper option in daily lineups today with a favorable lineup position. In limited at-bats this year he's hit considerably better against righties (.294-1-9) in 51 of his 55 at-bats.

Cubs | Starlin Castro out of lineup

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 08:10:14 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Starlin Castro is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 25. 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at the keystone and is hitting ninth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) does have a .288 average (15-for-52) in limited at-bats this year, but he has only one long ball and isn't a good pick for daily gamers Friday afternoon against Cole and while hitting at the bottom of the order.

Cubs | Tommy La Stella starting at the keystone

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 08:45:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at second base and batting sixth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Sunday. 2Bs Starlin Castro and Javier Baez are not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Manger Joe Maddon has a carousel at the keystone, so it is a near daily guessing game of who is going to start. La Stella ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has been hot for Chicago of late, though, with a .320/.370/.600 slash line over the past 12 games. He is a low-priced flier who offers cap relief and upside for FantasyScore contests Sunday.

Cubs | Kris Bryant resting Friday

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 09:27:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 18. 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at the hot corner and is hitting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) shouldn't be high on your list of players to play at second base in daily games. He's hitting only .250 against righties this year in limited time and has only one home run on the year.

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 07:41:16 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS/2B Starlin Castro is out of the lineup Thursday, Sept. 17, with 2B Tommy La Stella hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) takes on Charlie Morton, but he has yet to show anything worth using him for on FantasyScore.

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 07:40:43 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B/SS Starlin Castro is out of the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9, with 2B Tommy La Stella hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a shot in the dark on FantasyScore against Carlos Martinez. He has just five hits in 32 at-bats (.156).

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 09:44:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber (rib) is out of the lineup Monday, Sept. 7, with 3B Tommy La Stella hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($1,800, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .172 and faces Lance Lynn. He's not a great flyer on FantasyScore today.
