Giants Designate Dan Uggla, Tyler Colvin

Thus ends Colvin’s Saberhagening.

The Giants have designated [Dan] Uggla and [Tyler] Colvin for assignment, tweets Alex Pavlovic of the Mercury News…

Uggla struggled mightily in his short time in San Francisco, failing to register a hit in 12 plate appearances while striking out six times (to go with three errors in the field). Of course, that is a continuation of his difficult time this year and last in Atlanta. Since the start of 2013, the 34-year-old has slashed .171/.291/.326 over 694 plate appearances, racking up 217 strikeouts along the way.

Colvin, meanwhile, owns a meager .225/.270/.384 line in 148 plate appearances on the season.
