Braves | Dan Uggla happy with results of retooled swing

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.
