No matter how dominant a pitcher is, there is always one hitter who can solve him. Such a player can torment a pitcher throughout his career.
If you're not sure about this phenomenon, just ask Sandy Koufax how he fared against Hank Aaron. The Hammer batted .362 against Koufax in 130 at-bats. Aaron also hit seven home runs against the future Hall of Famer, tied for the most by any single player.
Strasburg has already experienced this lopsided performance by certain opposing batters in his career. But the one batsman that stands out is Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla. The former Miami Marlin has 20 at-bats against Strasburg, more than any other player in Major League Baseball.
Uggla is batting .471 against Stras with two home runs and eight RBI. And those at-bats will only increase, as the Braves and Nats both play in the NL East.
Stephen Strasburg better figure out how to pitch to Dan Uggla, or the slugging second baseman will haunt the big right-hander for the rest of his career.
