Dan Uggla can finally see. A day after the Atlanta Braves second baseman had LASIK eye surgery, he was back at Turner Field hitting off a tee, Kevin McAlpin tweets.

 

Uggla had the laser eye procedure done Friday to correct his vision to an astounding 20-15. He has struggled all season since being diagnosed with astigmatism during Spring Training.

This season has by far been Uggla's toughest. He's hit a Major League-worst .186 with 146 strikeouts, though he has also hit 21 homers.
