Dan Uggla was voted to start at second base by the fans for the 2012 MLB All-Star game and the right handed slugger is hoping for an invite into the Home Run Derby.
Many of you have touted Uggla as a candidate for the HR Derby. He said he would love to participate andis hoping to receive an invite.— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) July 1, 2012
Uggla has 201 home runs in his career and has 11 this season. This will be Uggla's third All-Star game in his career having gone in 2006 and 2008 as a member of the Florida Marlins. Uggla hit a career high 36 home runs in his first season with the Braves despite getting off to a very slow start. After a good start to the season Uggla has been slumping of late and has saw his batting average drop all the way to .235.
