Uggla Coming out of his slump?


Recommended Posts

Well, I saw him hitting for the last few days, and I saw his first two at bats today (along with watching a replay of the HR). It seems to me that he's been hitting harder and making much better contact, and today he got a good single and a gigantic bomb. In the two games prior, he made some nice contact and has induced a few walks as well, although for the most part he seemed to hit the ball right to a fielder. I mentioned this yesterday, but it seems to me that he's seeing the ball better, and I predict that he will be coming out of his slump now. I don't want to say too much, don't like to jinx things,so I'm going to continue watching as we play the Mets tomorrow, but I believe he could return to the Pre-injury Uggla here in these next few games...Thoughts? Anyone else seeing what I am, or am I just a little delusional here?

I'm seeing the same thing. I think hes a solid, nearly consistent player all year. But the injury really messed him up. It normally takes 2 to 3 weeks after they come back to the team for them to get their swing back. Hes looked a little better, but still only hits Fastballs. He might explode in the Mets series. We will have to wait about 20 hours to find out.

Haha, you're not delusional...I noticed the same things today. He's also looking a little more relaxed and comfortable at the plate. He was really on fire right up until the ankle injury, so we haven't had a Hot Uggla for a good month. I think he'll probably bust out this week.
