Can Atlanta find any takers for Uggla?
January, 1, 2014
By Joe Kaiser | ESPN Insider
Atlanta 2B Dan Uggla is three years into the 5-year, $62 million deal he signed in Jan. 2011, and is coming off a brutal season where he batted just .179 and finished with a -1.3 WAR. Uggla will turn 34 before Opening Day and was left off the Braves' postseason roster this past fall, and at this point one has to believe the Braves would love to be able to go in a new direction.
But unless the Braves find a taker for the power-hitting infielder, they might have to eat the remaining two years and $26 million on his deal in order to do so.
