Atlanta Braves officially release Dan 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...

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.
