In his two seasons in Atlanta, Uggla is batting .223 with 53 home runs and 146 RBI, while 36 of those 53 jacks came last year. This year, he's batting a career worst .203 with only 17 home runs, and he has struck out 150 times.
While the threat of his power is a nice thing to have in the lineup, it's almost not worth it considering he's not hitting if he's not blasting the ball over the wall.
For Atlanta's sake, it's time for Uggla to go and the Braves to make a change.
Hopefully, general manager Frank Wren can package him with a starting pitcher and bring in a third baseman or left fielder.
We might have already seen the rumblings of that happening with the recent benching of the second baseman by manager Fredi Gonzalez.
Here's a look at six options the Braves could look at in replacing Uggla at second base for next season.
Some of the moves will involve Martin Prado taking over second base, while others will have him going to third as planned. All of these moves hinge upon Uggla being moved himself in the offseason.
