The New Uggla and B.J. Upton?

The Braves are 13 games into this mostly feel good season and despite many positives, there are a few negatives.  Three players in particular are performing at B.J. Upton and Dan Uggla levels. Atlanta will not have a chance to be a .500 team if the number four and number five starter positions are not […] The post The New Uggla and B.J. Upton? appeared first on Atlanta Bullpen.

Giants snap losing streak, Chris Heston is a delight

Command and control. That's what murders losing streaks. One of the unexpected traditions over the last few years is that we're supposed to giggle about the unlikely recipients of World Series rings. "Is Dan Uggla going to get a ring?" "Is Eric Hacker going to get a ring?" "Is Waldis Joaquin going to get a ring?" Yes! All three of them. And many more. If we were living in a different permutation of the universe, Chris Heston would have been one of those unlikely recipients. Probably because he most definitely is an unlikely recipient. But he could have been one of the remember-that-guy...

Nats Journal: Today’s Nationals vs. Phillies lineups

Jordan Zimmermann will look to bounce back from a rough outing in Boston Monday afternoon as the Nationals hunt a fourth straight win. The big news of the day is Yunel Escobar’s injured groin, which will keep him out of this afternoon’s lineup and require an MRI today. With Escobar gone, Michael A. Taylor moves back to the leadoff spot. Danny Espinosa moves to third, and Dan Uggla starts at second. The Nationals do not want to make a move for another infielder until they know the extent of Escobar’s injury — if he will only need a couple days, they can wait it out without putting him...

Nats Journal: Dan Uggla, career starter, adjusting to not starting

Second baseman Dan Uggla has played 1,285 major league games, entering Friday. He has started 1,249 of them. From 2006 to 2013, he played in nearly every game his team did, sitting out 10 games or more only twice. Uggla has been a starter his whole career, so his uncertain role with the Nationals so far this season requires an adjustment.Read full article >>

Giancarlo Stanton moves to top of Marlins' all-time HR list (video)

NEW YORK -- So long, Dan Uggla. Giancarlo Stanton moved to the top of the Marlins' all-time home run list on Thursday -- one ahead of Uggla -- with a first-inning shot off the Mets' Dillon Gee at Citi Field....

Nats Journal: Nationals vs. Red Sox discussion thread: Game 9

The Nationals turn to Gio Gonzalez to help them avoid the sweep today. Gonzalez, who worked in and out of trouble for six innings in his last outing, will face fellow left-hander Wade Miley. Ian Desmond moves up to the second hole, and Werth slide back to third in today’s lineup. Dan Uggla and Tyler Moore are back, too. The defense is the defense — it will be trying to do better. The bullpen is taxed, and got more bad news this morning when the Nationals placed Craig Stammen on the 15-day disabled list.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Dan Uggla officially named to Nationals opening day roster

It happened somehow, though it’s hard to believe. Dan Uggla had fallen so far, so deep into a two-season slump that he looked finished, released by two teams and discounted by others. Now, he is among the most prominent feel-good stories of spring training, back on an opening day roster. The Nationals named Dan Uggla to their opening day roster Sunday. The former superstar, so recently down and out, can keep climbing his way back.Read full article >>

Dan Uggla confident as he awaits Nats' Opening Day roster decision

Dan Uggla feels confident as he awaits the Nationals' decision whether or not to put him on their Opening Day roster.

Uggla confident as he awaits decision

The Nationals have all but decided their Opening Day roster, though the team plans to make an official announcement on Sunday. And despite their unwillingness to confirm it, veteran Dan Uggla is almost certain to make the team. Uggla himself has not been told either way, but is simply happy with the way the last few…

Nats Journal: Nationals vs. Marlins spring training lineups and discussion thread

After a busy morning that included the release of Kevin Frandsen and the re-assignment of Tony Gwynn Jr., the Nationals head to Jupiter to play the Marlins. Yunel Escobar is at third base once again, the increasingly likely fill-in for Anthony Rendon. Dan Uggla is at second base and hitting fifth in what resembles a potential opening day lineup. Tyler Moore is in left field, perhaps an indication of the Nationals’ preferred substitute until Jayson Werth’s return. Then again, it may all mean nothing and not warrant reading into at all. Either way, there is plenty to discuss below.Read...

Uggla hoping for starting job, not bench role with Nats

Dan Uggla has looked good this spring, but do the Nationals have a roster spot for him? And is the 3-time All-Star willing to be a bench player?

Nats have tough decision to make on Uggla

VIERA, Fla. — Dan Uggla has been in a big-league clubhouse during the final week of spring training for a decade now, but he hasn’t found himself in this position — uncertain whether he’d be heading north with his club for Opening Day — since his very first camp as a Rule 5 draft pick…
