#Cubs activate Ross; La Stella to Iowa

The Cubs activated catcher David Ross off the bereavement list, and outfielder Matt Szczur was optioned to Triple-A Iowa. Also, infielder Tommy La Stella has been activated from the 60-day DL and optioned to Iowa. With the addition of La Stella, the Cubs’ 40-man roster now is at 40.

La Stella, 26, has been on the DL since April 14 with a right oblique strain first suffered on April 10 and re-aggravated in May.  He saw action in two games with the Cubs prior to his initial injury, going 1-for-6 (.167).  He batted .250 (9-for-36) with three doubles and three RBI in 10 games covering a pair of rehab assignments with Double-A Tennessee.  The Cubs acquired La Stella from Atlanta last November 16 for right hander Arodys Vizcaino.
