Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (head) left the game Tuesday, May 21, against the Atlanta Braves in the 10th inning after being kicked in the head by Braves 2B Dan Uggla while trying to break up a double play.

Atlanta Braves 2B Dan Uggla (calf) left the game Saturday, April 20, against the Pittsburgh Pirates due to a strained left calf. He is considered day to day.
Fantasy Tip: Ramiro Pena replaced him at second base, and might be called upon to start Sunday if Uggla is unable to go. If Uggla cannot play Sunday, you'll definitely want to reserve him in all fantasy leagues heading into the new week.

Atlanta Braves 2B Dan Uggla made his team-leading sixth error Friday, March 22, and he's hitting only .210 with one extra-base hit, three walks and 20 strikeouts in 62 spring at-bats.
Fantasy Tip: Uggla is the ultimate case of big power with a low BA that can cripple your fantasy baseball team if you're not careful. He's prone to extended slumps, too, so not even the power is consistent. Don't bank on any rebound here.

Atlanta Braves 2B Dan Uggla said he has been working on his swing and watching video to see if he can be a more consistent hitter this season. "I made an adjustment at the end of the year and just concentrated on building off of that. I watched a lot of film from 2006, when I was more of a complete hitter and was using the ball foul line to foul line. Watched a lot of that and worked my butt off in the weight room," Uggla said. He said he hopes his weight loss will lead him to be quicker, faster and stronger as well as have more energy.
