Report: Braves suspend Dan Uggla after he's late to game

getty images The Atlanta Braves have suspended second baseman Dan Uggla for one game without pay. That is just over $80,000 for those doing the math at home. Uggla’s suspension comes after he was extremely tardy. The Braves have not been using Uggla much as he has just 18 trips to the plate since the end of May. The veteran second baseman is hitting just .162/.241/.331 on the...

Tommy La Stella and the End of the Dan Uggla Era

Going into the 2011 season, the Atlanta Braves made a mistake that they would soon realize they were stuck with–they signed Dan Uggla to a 5 year, $62 million contract. At the end of the 2012 season, it didn’t seem like this would be a terrible move. Uggla had just put up a 4.0 WARP season and looked to continue the following four years at the traditional -0.5 WAR per season...

Atlanta Braves: Has Dan Uggla been benched?

The Atlanta Braves generally have consistent fielding, but one spot that is seen as a hole in their defense is second base. For a long time, Dan Uggla started at second, but for the past couple years he has been slipping both offensively and defensively.

Braves will continue benching Dan Uggla

getty images Last year the Atlanta Braves took Dan Uggla off their roster for the National League Division Series. Unable to find a trade the Braves were left with Uggla to start the season. Things have not improved for Uggla at the plate and now the Brave have grown restless. That likely means more bench time for the 34-year-old who is owed roughly $24 million over the next two...

Dan Uggla: Atlanta Braves’ hottest mistake

Atlanta Braves’ second baseman, Dan Uggla, may look great in his tight-fitting uniform, but most would argue that he doesn’t fit so well on the baseball diamond. Uggla stands on a five-year contract and has two seasons remaining.  While the Braves tried their best to hand him off to another team this offseason, they had no takers. At this point, for another organization to pick...
