A’s acquired Tommy La Stella from Angels


The Oakland Athletics pulled off a surprising trade with a division rival Friday night.

Veteran infielder Tommy La Stella was acquired from the Los Angeles Angels, The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports. According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the Angels will receive utilityman Franklin Barreto.

La Stella, 31, hasn’t developed into the star player many envisioned he would during his prospect days. However, he has carved out a productive role as a part-time player during prior stints with the Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs.

Since joining the Angels last season, La Stella has slashed .289/.353/.483 with 20 home runs. He earned his first All-Star selection last season.

La Stella will continue filling a part-time for the first-place A’s. The Angels, on the other hand, are clearly going into sell mode after beginning the season 10-22.
