Yankees Have Zero Interest In Dan Uggla

The Atlanta Braves are said to be trying to trade their second basemen Dan Uggla to clear some money but the Yankees are not interested. The Yankees were sure to at least receive a phone call from Frank Wren after losing Robinson Cano to the Mariners but the Yankees do not seem interested in the 33 year old. Uggla is coming off of a season in which he posted a triple slash of .179/.302/.362 with 22 home runs and he lost his starting job to Elliot Johnson in Atlanta.

Uggla is owed $13 million in each of 2014 and 2015 and the Braves are almost willing to give him away so the Yankees should at least keep this card in their back pocket. He is not a Plan B, Plan C, or maybe not even a Plan D but he takes his walks, 14.3%, and hits for power but his average and defense are atrocious.
