Dan Uggla Switches Agencies

Heading into his final season of arbitration, Dan Uggla has switched agents. The second baseman left Jeff Borris and the Beverly Hills Sports Council and joined Terry Bross at Gaylord Sports Management, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports

Uggla makes $7.8MM this season and will earn more than that in 2011 before becoming eligible for free agency. The Marlins may not let him hit free agency, however. President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest told Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the team has interest in locking up some players to long term deals. Uggla, who just reached the 20-homer plateau for the fifth consecutive season, is a prime candidate for an extension.

Extend him…he’s starting to become a better HITTER instead of just a home run hitter.

Agreed 100%. Try 1 more time to get him to move over to 3B also. That was some laser of a HR he hit last night in SF. All time MLB record for 2B that missed getting mentioned here.. 5 consecutive 20HR seasons and to begin his career. If he continues as a 2B, see no reason why the guy can’t continue to add to that record streak either.

I don’t think anybody honestly believes Uggla to be worth $20MM a year, not even crazy management. If he’s lucky Florida will offer him 6 years/$90MM but I still say he gets in the neighborhood of 6 years/$63MM.
