The Nationals placed Dan Uggla on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday with back spasms. The move has cleared a spot for Stephen Strasburg to make his return from the DL. (Source: Dan Kolko on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Uggla owns a weak .191 batting average in 110 plate appearances this season. He should be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

Category: Injury Updates

Dan Uggla in the last 2 games versus the Braves is 4-for-7 with four hits, three runs, one triple, one home run, 5 RBI and only one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Looks like Uggla is taking it to his former team. Last night he hit the game winning home run to give the Nationals the lead after being down 9-1 and 10-2. With Rendon sidelined again, looks like Uggla will be staying around a little longer than expected. During the Braves series he brought up his average from a .114 to a .190. Look for him to continue his dominant performance versus the righty Alex Wood.

Dan Uggla went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in the Nationals 13-12 comeback win over the Atlanta Braves. The ninth inning home run proved to be the game-winner. Uggla also had a triple and raised his average to .190 this season.

Fantasy Impact: Uggla was hitting just .135 with two RBI entering Tuesday's game. He's struck out 11 times with just three walks in 42 at-bats, but Tuesday's game raised his slugging percentage to a respectable .405. Expect Uggla to show more consistency moving forward.

Dan Uggla went 0-for-3 with 2 strikeouts in first game of the series versus the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Uggla is looking ugly right now as he is barely making any contact with the ball. So far this season, he has 2 hits and one was a double in the 2nd game of the season. He will be facing Cole Hamels next. In 62 plate appearances vs. Hamels, Uggla has a .145 average with 3 HRs, 6 RBI and 22 strikeouts. Stay away from Uggla unless you have no other choice. Especially with Rendon returning soon from the 15-Day DL.

Dan Uggla finished the game with the Mets 0-for-3 with a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Uggla looked like classic Uggla with his all or nothing swing. He is batting behind Ian Desmond in the seven hole as the starting 2B. You need to keep an eye on Uggla as the Nationals can also utilize Danny Espinosa at 2B with Yunel Escobar at 3B. Until further notice, Uggla will play 2B on Saturday vs. Jacob deGrom
