Nationals unsure of role for Dan Uggla
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Utility man Dan Uggla is having a solid spring in Nationals camp, but the team isn't sure what it's going to do with him yet. 

Uggla went one for two on Friday to raise his average to .292 in spring training games. 

"We haven't defined any roles," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com's Bill Ladson. "What we do know at this point is that he is seeing the ball well and he is playing well. I like his at-bats. We are giving him as much time as we can in every aspect -- starting a game, coming off the bench as a pinch-hitter, everything we can possibly think of to get him used to everything."

Dan Uggla feeling good after getting treatment for vision problem
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Dan Uggla is attempting to make a comeback this spring with the Nationals after his career quickly spiraled out of control the last few seasons. Although, it appears Uggla's struggles at the plate primarily had to do with a vision problem, which has been diagnosed as oculomotor dysfunction.

Uggla had perfect 20-15 vision when he held his head still, but it wasn't as sharp (20-100) when he moved his head. His condition was a byproduct of an inner-ear and balance problem, which might have been the result of previously undetected concussions Uggla suffered after getting hit in the head, per NatsInsider.com.

To help Uggla with his vision problem, former major leaguer Marquis Grissom contacted Uggla and put him in touch with Las Vegas-based Dr. Robert Donatelli, who helped Grissom overcome an unusual vision problem years earlier.

“It wasn’t just like, boom! It was gradual stages of getting better,” he said. “He’s got to retrain the ocular muscles and that kind of stuff. But it was a gradual thing. Everything would start to become easy again. Not easy, but the way I remembered it. They do all kinds of stuff for balance. It was just a culmination of things. It’s hard to explain, but all in all, I feel really good.

“I’m not going to blame the last couple years on that, because I’m out there competing. That was me. Who knows what the reason [for my struggles] was. But it’s nice for people to reach out and help and let you know there is something that’s going on, and it can be fixed. Knowing that I’ve done everything I can do and I feel the way I do, it’s a good feeling.”

Report: Dan Uggla dealt with oculomoter dysfunction
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nationals infielder Dan Uggla dealt with oculomoter dysfunction the past couple seasons, according to the Boston Globe.

Uggla saw major decline in his numbers after being hit in the head with a pitch back in 2012. Former major-league Marquis Grissom experienced a similar situation during his career, and recommened Uggla see orthopedist Robert Donatelli. Donatelli discovered the oculomoter dysfunction, which impacted his ability to see the ball when moving his head. Donatelli recommended a set of exercises for Uggla, and declared Uggla's vision to be back to normal after two weeks.

The 34-year-old Uggla hit .149/.229/.213 over 141 at-bats last year. He'll attempt to win a role with the Nationals during spring training.

Nationals taking chance on 2B Dan Uggla
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Second baseman Dan Uggla, who has spent most of his recent years creating a breeze at the plate, has signed a minor league deal with the Nationals with a spring training invite.

Uggla received a career-low 141 at-bats last season with Atlanta and San Francisco. He compiled a disturbing slash line of .149/.229/.213 with 46 strikeouts. His batting average has fallen in each of the last four years.
