YOUR MARLINS/BRAVES VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY BRIEF SERIES PREVIEW



From Jeff Passan's 10 Degrees:
8. Dan Uggla can’t hit right now. Thirty-four at-bats into his career with the Atlanta Braves, Uggla is stuck hitting .158 with two RBIs, both from solo home runs. He’s not walking nearly as much as usual, though he’s not striking out close to as much. If anyone’s start is being skewed by a small sample size, it may be Uggla’s.

Production is production, though, and he’s looking like the antithesis of the $62 million the Braves locked up for five years this offseason. Already a sketchy deal because of his age (31) and his defensive capabilities at second base (diminishing), the slow introduction to Atlanta hasn’t helped.
That is all.
