Braves reassigned INFs Tommy La Stella and Tyler Greene to minor league camp.
No surprises here. La Stella didn't hit well enough this spring to force the Braves to consider him for an Opening Day roster spot, but he is an exciting talent and should be up at some point this summer. He might even steal starting second base duties from Dan Uggla. Mar 24 - 1:51 PM

Tommy La Stella went 2-for-4 with a double on Sunday and is 7-for-15 with two doubles this spring.

La Stella was a breakthrough prospect last year, hitting .356/.444/.492 in 303 at-bats, most of them coming in Double-A. It's hard to imagine the Braves giving him the second base job coming out of spring training, but he could get a chance come May or June if Dan Uggla can't bounce back.

Braves prospect Tommy La Stella (back) returned to Arizona Fall League action on Friday after missing the previous two games due to a strained back.

The 24-year-old second baseman is slashing a terrific .304/.443/.482 with a homer and 10 RBI through 16 games on the Fall season. This coming on the heels of an impressive .356/.444/.492 line in 88 games between High-A Lynchburg and Double-A Mississippi this season. Depending on how the Dan Uggla situation plays out this offseason, there's a chance that La Stella could open the season as the Braves starting second baseman. He won't offer much in terms of power, but is capable of stealing double-digit bases and should hit for a respectable average, which would make him an option as a middle infielder in deeper mixed leagues.
