Mariners sign IF Tommy La Stella to 1-year deal

SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have signed infielder Tommy La Stella to a one-year contract, adding another versatile veteran to their roster. La Stella spent the past two seasons with San Francisco but was designated for assignment by the Giants in late December. La Stella signed a three-year, $18.75 million deal with before the 2021 season but played in just 136 games and hit .245 over his two seasons with the Giants. Seattle will be the sixth different team for La Stella after breaking in with Atlanta in 2014. He was an All-Star selection with the Los Angeles Angels in 2019. La Stella will likely be a backup infielder and an option as a designated hitter for the Mariners.
