Injury: Dan Uggla to Disabled List For Eye Surgery

Kevin C. Cox

According to various reports on twitter, Dan Uggla is hitting the disabled list for eye surgery. Tyler Pastornicky has been recalled and has been inserted into the lineup for tonight's game.

Uggla has been struggling and the eye issues could partially be to blame. He will be getting LASIK surgery. Uggla should be able to recover in a couple weeks.

Another option the Braves had to call up was Tommy La Stella. La Stella has a .338/.406/.447 line at double-A Mississippi while Pastornicky is hitting .292/.354/.392 at triple-A Gwinnett.
