Braves | Tommy La Stella rebounding after slump

Atlanta Braves 2B Tommy La Stella hit .411 (23-for-56) with seven walks, five strikeouts and a .476 on-base percentage in his first 16 games this year and followed that up by going just 3-for-41 (.073) with a .133 on-base percentage in his next 11 games, including five from the leadoff spot. La Stella has gone 5-for-13 with three doubles, a triple, six RBIs, four walks and a .529 on-base percentage since being moved down in the order. La Stella said he went away from his approach during his mini slump, and he's trying to "control the strike zone" by not chasing pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Check to see if anyone in your league dropped La Stella. You could do much worse at the keystone in terms of fantasy production. La Stella isn't much of a power threat, but his knowledge of the strike zone and contact-oriented approach will help in other categories, mainly on-base percentage.
