Dan Uggla smacks solo home run, grand slam Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves second baseman Dan Uggla went 2 for 4 with two home runs and five RBI in his team's 9-6 win over the Phillies Monday.

Uggla was 0 for 3 at the plate going into the eighth inning, when he hit the second of three consecutive home runs for the Braves. He then came up with the bases loaded and his team down one in the ninth inning and cranked a grand slam, posting his first multihomer game since June 9 of last season. He has hit .222/.265/.400 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 45 at-bats.

Dan Uggla working on being more selective at plate
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves second baseman Dan Uggla entered play Sunday batting just .200 (4 for 20) through five games, but perhaps a small victory is that he has just four strikeouts and opened the season without striking out in his first two games.

Uggla spent the offseason focusing on keeping his front side much quieter than it had been in recent years as he looks to cut down on his strikeout rate, per MLB.com.

"I'd have rolled over that [curveball] last year," Uggla said, per MLB.com. "When you're head is moving as much as mine was moving, you speed the ball up. You think that you can hit it and it's not a strike, and you're already committed to swinging at it.

"I'm excited about the way things have been going. I just need to be more selective. When you feel good, you want to go up there and hit. But I need to remember to be selective and put the ball in play."

Dan Uggla slugs a couple of doubles
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Braves second baseman Dan Uggla had a productive game Tuesday against the Brewers, after opening the season hitless in the opener the previous day.

Uggla went 2 for 4 with two doubles, though he did not drive any runs in. He scored once, as the Braves went on to win, 5-2.

Uggla is just 2 for 8 through the first two games, but has yet to strike out, so it's not all bad news. He is coming off the worst season of his career, as he hit just .179/.309/.362 a year ago.

Hitting coach 'encouraged' by Dan Uggla's offseason work
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves second baseman Dan Uggla doesn't blame his struggles last season on the vision problems that led him to undergoing LASIK surgery in August. He said it was the bad habits that started to form a year earlier during the 2012 season.

"Everything was so rushed," Uggla said, per MLB.com. "I didn't have any of my legs because I was out on my front foot so bad. I want to get back to my legs, where I have a base, because that is where my swing starts. For whatever reason, I got into some bad habits and I couldn't fix it. I just went into a tailspin."

As Uggla prepares for the 2014 season, he hasn't forgotten about the emotions he felt after being left off the postseason roster in 2013. Though, Braves hitting coach Greg Walker said Uggla hasn't let it affect his preparation.

"The way the season ended for Danny last year, he could have come in here with an attitude," Walker said. "I've seen the exact opposite. He's getting after it. He's been out here every day. He's a competitor and he'll fight you. You don't ever want to bet against a guy that wants to fight you.

"I think he worked on the right things this winter. He's doing it. I'm encouraged."
