The Atlanta Braves released struggling second baseman Dan Uggla on Friday. Uggla is still owed over $18 million over the remainder of this year and next. Per ESPN:
quote:Uggla is batting .162 with two home runs in 48 games this season.
The Braves announced Uggla's release on their official Twitter account Friday, five days after suspending the slumping slugger for what manager Fredi Gonzalez called "an internal matter."
In his fourth season with the Braves, the 34-year-old Uggla was batting .162 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 48 games and 130 at-bats.
Uggla lost his job to Tommy La Stella when the rookie second baseman was called up May 28.
