Uggla’s Bright Streak in an Ugly Season

by

Atlanta Brave’s Second Baseman, Dan Uggla, is in the midst of a League best 28 game hitting streak.  However, the 2011 season has been Uggla’s worst as he is currently batting only .220.  Before the streak started the former Sliver Slugger was batting only .173.  During the past 28 games Uggla has batted .355, sent 12 balls out of the park and has a higher slugging percentage, .727, than his 2011 OPS of .716. Check out how Uggla stacks up with Atlanta’s other bats.

Uggla returns to Miami tonight as the Braves open a three game series against his former team, the Florida Marlins.  Lets see how the team’s offenses compare.

Can Uggla keep his hitting streak alive against the Marlins and continue to begin to justify his five-year, $62 million contract extension?
