Dan Uggla 2B WAS 9 Days

Uggla is having a solid spring so far, hitting .292/.452/.500 with an impressive 6:3 BB:K ratio in 24 at-bats.

The walks and strikeouts are a great sign that the vision issues that have plagued him the last couple of seasons are a thing of the past. Unless Yunel Escobar's oblique injury forces him to begin the season on the DL there likely won't be any room for Uggla on the Nationals' roster, but he may be playing well enough for another club to give him a chance.

Uggla went 1-for-2 on Friday with a walk, hitting the ball hard in all three of his plate appearances, the Washington Post reports.

The second baseman is trying to get his career back on track after vision problems produced a couple of truly awful seasons. If Uggla demonstrates that he's got something left in the tank, he could catch on with a team looking for some thump in its lineup, but his odds of breaking camp with the Nationals are fairly slim after they traded for Yunel Escobar in the offseason.

Uggla was diagnosed with oculomotor dysfunction in the offseason, stemming from incidents in June 2012 and March 2013 in which he got hit in the head by pitches, the Boston Globe reports.

His vision was dropping from 20/15 to 20/100 whenever he moved his head or body, making it difficult for him to pick up the rotation of a pitch and causing him problems on defense. Uggla has now been declared free of the condition, which if true could make him an interesting dark horse candidate for the Nationals' second base job.

Uggla agreed to terms with the Nationals on a minor league deal, which includes an invitation to spring training.

The veteran played 48 games for the Braves last season, hitting a disappointing .162 with 10 RBI and 40 strikeouts before being released in mid-July. He was picked up by the Giants shortly after but the struggles continued, as Uggla went 0-for-11 at the plate with six strikeouts in just 11 at-bats. The 34-year-old will head to spring training with the Nationals in hopes of winning a roster spot and rejuvenating his career.

Dan Uggla went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and committed an error at second base Saturday against the Dodgers.

Uggla isn't making a great first impression with the Giants. However, it's not like anyone else on the team had any luck against Clayton Kershaw tonight. Uggla will probably be back in the lineup against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu on Saturday.
