Braves | Dan Uggla happy with results of retooled swing

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 12:40:05 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Dan Uggla spent much of the winter working on his swing, and he's feeling great heading into the season. Uggla entered Thursday, March 27, hitting .280 with four home runs and an on-base percentage of .406 in 50 spring at-bats. "I feel better than I've ever felt (in the spring), as far as knowing where I'm at and knowing my swing," Uggla said. "It's not a new swing, I just got back to where I was before." Manager Fredi Gonzalez is leaning toward batting Uggla in the sixth spot in the batting order, in front of C Evan Gattis.

Fantasy Tip: Uggla is coming into 2014 with a serious chip on his shoulder after tanking last year and being left off the postseason roster. His BA won't ever help you, but perhaps he bounces back some. He's not a bad gamble in the last few rounds in mixed leagues for his power.

Braves | Evan Gattis had knee surgery

Fri, 14 Mar 2014 13:33:41 -0700

Atlanta Braves C Evan Gattis (knee) underwent knee surgery last October, leading the team to be careful with his workload behind the plate this spring. The surgery was of the arthroscopic variety to remove a dime-sized bone chip that was "floating around" in his knee since 2006. Gattis had an OATS procedure earlier that year that is an invasive procedure that plugs healthy cartilage and bone to a non-weight bearing part of the knee to fix damaged cartilage. Manager Fredi Gonzalez plans to have Gattis catch 100 to 110 games this year, but the team will be mindful not to overdo it, giving him occasional starts at first base or in left field.

Fantasy Tip: His surgery is far enough in the past now that we shouldn't be too worried, especially since he played all of last season with the bone chip in his knee. Gattis could easily regress in his homer numbers, but with catcher eligibility now, he's still a very good buy.
