“Uggla” is Swedish for “not on the roster”.
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez met with some players regarding roster decisions after the team held a workout that was closed to media members on Tuesday at Turner Field. An industry source said Uggla was informed that he will not be part of the 25-man roster the Braves will use during their best-of-five NLDS matchup against the Dodgers.

It seems that Luhnow and his staff take the opposite approach from a lot of clubhouses. Instead of drafting tons of hitters with raw power to develop their approach, they draft hitters with a polished approach hoping to develop power. On the other side, they draft pitchers who already have the control and/or command in hopes that they will gain velocity, instead of drafting the fire ballers hoping that they will develop control.
It’s an innovative approach that I think is taking advantage of a market inefficiency. It is safe to say that the SO:BB ratio plays a big role in their scouting and development, and that is a good reason to be excited about the future.
