The Cubs announced on Thursday that infielder Tommy La Stella has been traded to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

La Stella, 29, hit .266/.340/.331 in 192 plate appearances across 123 games for the Cubs this past season, spending most of his time at third and second base.

The Cubs recently picked up Ronald Torreyes from the Yankees, so La Stella became redundant. The Angels, meanwhile, pick up some infield depth. La Stella is entering his second of three years of arbitration eligibility and is due a slight raise on his $950,000 salary from the 2018 season.
