Uggla providing little hope for a turnaround
Nine #Braves had hits today including six with multiple hits. Only one in lineup who went hitless was Uggla (0-for-4, 2 K’s)

Even Kris Medlen had two hits today, though his pitching line (5 IP: 14 H, 9 ER) was atrocious. I wouldn’t worry about Med Dog — he’s been fine this spring, though it’s a reminder that he’ll never be as good as he was last season.
I fear we may be saying the same about Uggla before long. He’s now struck out 19 times in 55 spring ABs and has nearly twice as many errors as walks.
On the plus side, Justin Upton homered twice and drove in 6 today, while Juan Francisco hit his third homer in four games.
