by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) The Braves seem likely to move away from Dan Uggla at second base moving forward, according to a report from MLB.com Thursday.

Uggla, who is hitting just .184 on the season, is likely to lose playing time over the next few weeks, though it does not seem likely he will be released, with $24 million left on his contract.

Uggla has been out of the starting lineup for four of the last nine games, and Ramiro Pena and Tyler Pastornicky will continue to see more playing time at second base. An exact breakdown of the expected split is not yet known, but the team has also discussed the possibility of calling up top prospect Tommy La Stella.
