Never fear — the Braves have just the antidote for their moribund offense: Dan Uggla, back at 2B today, batting 6th. Fortunately we won’t have to endure Uggla and B.J. in the same line-up. Jordan Schafer gets the start in CF, against a lefty no less. Can’t do any worse. B.J. is on pace to strike out more than 200 times this year.
So is his little brother, the streakiest hitter I’ve ever seen. If you didn’t follow the Braves closely you’d assume Justin was having a solid season (.356 OBP, .517 slugging). But 5 of his 9 homers came in a span of 9 games in April. He has 1 HR, 1 RBI and 19 K’s this month.
Heyward 9, JUpton 7, Freeman 3, Johnson 5, Simmons 6, Uggla 4, Laird 2, Schafer 8, Floyd 1
