DAN UGGLA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dan Uggla playing 'big role' with Nationals despite limited playing time

Baseball fans don't see much of Dan Uggla anymore these days, but that doesn't signify that he's not having a significant impact on the Washington Nationals in his first year with the team. Uggla has only received 85 at-bats as a member of the Nationals this season, in which he's compiled a batting average of .235, hit a home run, and driven in 12 runs. While that's not much of an...

The Braves Paid Nationals’ Dan Uggla Almost $80K To Beat Them (Video)

The Atlanta Braves’ business model wasn’t too efficient Tuesday night. The Braves played host to the Washington Nationals, who started a certain Dan Uggla at second base. Uggla had himself quite the game, clubbing a three-run homer in the ninth inning to lift the Nats to a 13-12 win at Turner Field. So how will the 35-year-old be rewarded for his efforts? With a nice check from...

San Francisco Giants’ trade rumors: Jimmy Rollins edition

With the recent signing of Dan Uggla and the return of Marco Scutaro, the San Francisco Giants may have addressed their deficiency at second base but the struggles of shortstop Brandon Crawford may make the team look at upgrading the other middle infield position prior to the July 31 trade deadline. Crawford managed to keep his head above water hitting .253 in the first four months...

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 news: Days dwindling down for Dan Uggla?

The Atlanta Braves shook off what was a rough stretch of games a week ago by piecing together a three-game winning streak with victories over the St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers over the last three days. The resurgence in offense came as a relief for players and fans alike, but it is interesting to consider the fact that second baseman Dan Uggla has been almost completely...

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. Despite efforts to improve Uggla’s hitting, such as laser eye surgery and being more conservative when swinging the bat, Uggla...

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...
