The Giants are likely to release second baseman Dan Uggla in the coming days.

A report surfaced Wednesday that the team had already cut ways with the struggling infielder, but Uggla remains a member of the Giants for now. He likely won't be for too much longer, though, as sources have indicated to the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman that Uggla will be cut loose soon. Uggla is 0-for-11 with six strikeouts and three errors through four games with the club.

Giants released 2B Dan Uggla.

Well, that was quick. Uggla played in just four games for the Giants, going hitless in 11 at-bats and committing three errors in the field. The Giants are rumored to be in the market for a second baseman before the trade deadline. Uggla's release emphasizes that idea.

Dan Uggla had a rough night in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts, and also making a critical error that led to an unearned run.

Uggla also drew a walk in the ballgame. He's now hitting an unfathomable .152/.234/.217 on the season and is closer to being released than he is to being fantasy relevant once again.

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.

Dan Uggla went 0-for-2 before being removed in a double-switch in his Giants debut Friday.

Uggla wasn't responsible for any of Zack Greinke's 10 strikeouts, so at least he had something going for him. The Giants are facing lefties the next two days, but it won't get much easier for Uggla with Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu on the hill. He's 1-for-12 with six strikeouts lifetime against Kershaw.

Giants purchased the contract of Dan Uggla from Triple-A Fresno.

Uggla, who was signed to a minor league contract on Monday, will now be given an opportunity to see regular work at second base for the Giants with Marco Scutaro and Ehire Adrianza on the shelf. He's batting seventh in his Giants debut on Friday, and could carve out value in NL-only formats if he can find his power stroke.

Giants signed INF Dan Uggla to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Fresno.

Uggla was batting just .162/.241/.231 with 40 strikeouts in 145 plate appearances this season for the Braves and showed up late to the second-to-last game of the first half, resulting in a one-game suspension and then his release. The 34-year-old is a shell of his former self and will have to prove that he has something left at Fresno. The Braves are on the hook for the $19 million remaining on his contract. His minor league deal with the Giants comes with an August 1 opt-out.

Braves released 2B Dan Uggla.

Uggla had been playing sparingly for the Braves this season and has hit just .175/.295/.332 batting line since the beginning of last year. He's still owed over $19 million through the end of next season, but Atlanta viewed it as a sunk cost at this point. Uggla will be scooped up cheaply by someone, but it's hard to imagine him rediscovering his stroke anytime soon.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Braves are expected to release Dan Uggla.

There were rumors last weekend that they might be cutting him loose, and now it appears they'll indeed make the move. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal is hearing the same as Sherman, though he says it's unclear whether Uggla will be designated for assignment or given his outright release. It's a moot point, as no one is going to claim him on waivers. Uggla is rarely playing for Atlanta these days and has hit just .175/.295/.332 batting line since the beginning of last season. He's owed roughly $19 million through the end of next season.
