A’s trade for Tommy La Stella from Angels to boost infield

The A’s reportedly have traded infielder Franklin Barreto for Los Angeles Angels‘ infielder Tommy La Stella.

The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal was first on the report.  

La Stella has been having a solid season slashing .273/.371/.475 with four home runs and 27 hits. 

Franklin Barreto hasn’t been getting a ton of playing time this season and was part of the already crowded second base options including Tony Kemp, Vimael Machin and Chad Pinder.

La Stella brings an additional lefty bat to the infield, and possibly elsewhere, that the A’s were searching for heading into the season.

The article will be updated.
