Athletic frame and possesses a really nice run tool. Had two hard hit balls on the day, with a line out to left field in his first at bat and a double down the left field line in his final at bat, which started the rally in the seventh. Stance is square and athletic, level path to contact, and barrel is out of the zone quick. Shows some pull side tendency to the swing. La Bella is a rangy defender in the outfield with more of a left field/center field profile.

La Bella is 6-1 with an athletic frame that has some strength present and some projection left to it. He hits from the right side from a balanced athletic stance, low leg kick stride on line, short load back. Hips rotate completely and he maintains good lower half balance.

Strong athletic frame at 6-foot-1, 175-pounds. At the plate La Bella started with an open upright stance, simple stride forward, and lands on line. Hands start high and make minimal load back, slightly uphill path, and an uphill finish with some bat speed. Had some pull side tendency at times during his rounds, but the swing worked best when he stayed with a middle approach. Exit velocity was 79 mph.

Strong athletic frame at 6-foot-1, 175-pounds. At the plate La Bella started with an open athletic stance, simple stride forward, and lands on line. Hands load back to a slight arm bar, level path through the zone, and an uphill finish with some bat speed. Stayed inside the ball well, using the middle and right side with line drive tendency. Exit velocity was 81 mph. Solid defender in the outfield with nice glove presentation and worked through the catch well. Has solid arm strength with a full arm circle out of a three-quarter arm slot at 84 mph. Runs well enough, 4.01 Home-1st, to contribute at all three outfield spots and has the arm strength to go with it.
