San Francisco Giants Release Infielder

Done with the San Francisco Giants.

The Giants have released infielder Tommy La Stella.

La Stella was designated for assignment last week and now the Giants will be forced to pay the final $11.5 million remaining on his three-year, $18.75 million contract they signed him to in February of 2021.

The thirty-three-year-old dealt with injuries during his time in San Francisco and wound up slashing .245/.297/.380, with nine home runs, 41 RBIs and 43 runs scored across 136 games played between 2021-22. 

La Stella has been a solid contact hitter in the past and can easily get back to that, barring any more injury problems. A team will likely scoop him up in the coming days.
