Nats sign Dan Uggla to a minor league deal

The Washington Nationals have signed 2B Dan Uggla to a minor league deal that includes a spring training invitation.  The Nats are quite familiar with Uggla, given the fact the majority of his career was played with division rivals Atlanta and Florida. Atlanta signed Uggla to a huge deal that really did not pan out for the Braves.  That’s reason enough to sign him.  Even better...

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.

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.

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.

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...
