Dan Uggla returns from having laser fired into head

Dan Uggla returns from having laser fired into head

Braves "second baseman" Dan Uggla recently took some time off from hitting .186 to have a laser fired into his eyeballs.

Uggla, who has spent part of his career demanding that he was, and continues to be, a talented defender, was placed on the DL for a month to undergo LASIK eye surgery. His vision had been registered at 20/30, which is good enough for umpires (ZING), but not an infielder.

Uggla has returned from the laser room with 20/15 vision, and should be crawling back up to that Mendoza Line in no time.
