Giants Revitalize Tommy La Stella, Putting Anthony Disclavani In 60 Days Illinois

The Giants announced a series of moves ahead of tonight’s contest with the Rockies. player Tommy La Stella Returned from the injured list for 10 days with a defensive player Luis Gonzalez Selected to Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding active roster movement (via Susan Sluser of the San Francisco Chronicle). San Francisco also chose diluted Mauricio Lovera and options Junior Marti. To create space on the 40-man list for Llovera, writer Anthony Disclavani He was moved from the 10-day to 60-day-wounded list.

La Stella is in tonight’s lineup as the designated hitter, making his debut of the season. A three-year deal was signed during the 2020-21 season and in the 2020-21 season, the second base left-hander suffered some injuries during his first season in San Francisco. La Stella missed a few months due to a strain in his left hamstring and then a fracture in the right hand. Then hampered by left Achilles pain late in the season, he was forced to undergo surgery in late October.

Recovery from this procedure continued into the regular season and ended up costing La Stella for the first five weeks of the year. Now that he’s back, he’ll likely take on a regular second lead role. La Stella posted .250/.308/.405 streaks in 242 board appearances during his first season as a giant, but he marked an excellent .281/.370/.449 in roughly the same amount of playing time during the shortened 2020 campaign. One of the best contact hitters in the game, La Stella may ultimately be one of the best table-setters for captain Gabe Kapler. There is no doubt that his highly anticipated comeback has played a role in the team of giants. resolution To deal with the benefit Mauricio Dupont To Houston over the weekend.

Lovera is back with the big league club for the second time this season. Former loyalist Phillies signed a minor league deal over the winter and was selected in late April while the team grappled with COVID-19 concerns. He appeared in four games and made several innings, allowing once to run while hitting five without walking. Despite hard work, Llovera lost his place in the 40-man squad as the club returned to health.

The 26-year-old’s first call-up came as a designated replacement for COVID, meaning the team could bring him back to Sacramento without running him through concessions. That’s not the case this time around, which suggests that the Giants plan to keep him in the 40-man roster for much longer. That’s understandable after Llovera threw 12 2/3 a goalless round at the minors, fueling 17 hits against a walking pair. Llovera still has a minor league option left, so he can still jump between San Francisco and Sacramento while maintaining a roster of 40 players.

DeSclafani originally landed on IL for 10 days on April 22 with a sore right ankle. His move today keeps him out of the MLB game for sixty days from that date, which means he won’t return to Oracle Park Hill until at least late June. The move came as a bit of a surprise, as the right advanced to the backlog during its recovery last week.

Kapler confirmed that DeSclafani has not suffered a setback (via Maria Guardado from MLB.com). Instead, the club appears to have just committed to a cautious rehabilitation of the 32-year-old, who re-signed him on a three-year deal over the holiday season. DeSclafani threw 167 2/3 innings from 3.17 balls last season.
