    Uggla To the DL for Lasik surgery

    Mark Bowman ‏@mlbbowman 18m
    The #Braves have placed Uggla on the DL to undergo LASIK surgery. The club has wanted him to undergo this procedure since Spring Training.

    Uggla has been placed on the DL (eye surgery) braves announce. Pastornicky recalled

    Kinda wish LaStella would have been called up instead of Pastornicky, but it's about time Uggla fixed his vision.

    Uggla hopes to play in rehab games approximately 10 days after surgery. Doesn't expect DL stint to last longer than the 15 days. #Braves
    Guess the title can be changed, looks like Dan will be rushing back. Figured since normal eye surgery recovery takes awhile to recover from.

    Makes sense to do it now, it's not like we won't win the division without him. Comfortable leads make everything much smoother.

    Uggla and Braves expect he can be back in a couple of wks. Will need a few days after surgery, then can go out and get some minor league ABs
    ajc

    Uggs did everything he could to play with his sight problems. We saw how effective he was when he got the contacts (posted a .900+ OPS for a couple of weeks or so) but apparently that didn't fix the problem entirely.

    Good luck with the surgery.

    Now, lets see if we actually have something with Rev at 2B...would of been interested to see La Stella as well...but maybe they didn't want to start his clock just yet.

    I was actually wondering when this was going to happen. We need to see what pastor can do.

    I believe this should rush the acquisition of infield help through the waiver wire.

    and nobody goes to the DL for lasik surgery LOL! This is clearly a move that was made in order to 1) see what pastor can do full time and 2) to give Dan some time off cause he's been sucking *** lately

    Thanks, I remember something happened right before he went on a tear but couldn't remember exactly what it was.

    It's not the first option so I guess, if we had to choose, it would be the 2nd option. Just a move where the braves felt they could make with the division lead and all.
