Dan Uggla has been notoriously streaky through his first two years with the Atlanta Braves, but getting his vision checked last month has led to enormously increased productivity and confidence at the plate.
In the first 67 games he played in 2013, Uggla hit an awful .194, but with 13 homers. Entering Monday, Uggla has hit .277 with three homers over his last 12 games, and he largely gives credit to his new contact lenses.
"There are some at-bats when it does not feel like it's quite there," Uggla said on braves.com. "But more times than not, it's night-and-day different."
Uggla currently leads the Braves with 16 homers on the season.
