CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs today traded infielder Tommy La Stella to the Los Angeles Angels for a player to be named or a cash consideration.

La Stella, who turns 30 in January, spent the last four seasons with Chicago and batted .273 (139-for-509) with 34 doubles, nine homers and 63 RBI in 303 games in a Cubs uniform. A 2016 World Champion, La Stella departs as the club’s all-time single-season pinch-hit leader as he tallied 24 hits in that role in 2018. La Stella was acquired by the Cubs from the Atlanta Braves for pitcher Arodys Vizcaino on November 16, 2014.

Chicago’s 40-man roster now stands at 39 players.
