The addition of Dan Uggla was the biggest move for the Atlanta Braves this offseason. Uggla has shown great power during his time in the majors, as he has hit 154 homers in five seasons, which comes out to an average of 30.8 homers per year. He has also racked up 465 RBI during his career at an average of 93 a season.
The Braves may have picked Uggla up at the height of his career, as he had his best year to date in 2010, hitting career highs in average (.287), homers(33), and RBI (105) among others, and he will be just 31 when the season starts.
Uggla may be the key to the Braves’ season, as he is hoping to provide them the power they have so desperately needed, especially from the right side. Here are 10 reasons why Uggla could go from the Braves’ MVP to the National League’s MVP.
