Braves 2B Uggla gets rehab start after eye surgery

Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla is scheduled to make a rehab start for Triple-A Gwinnett as he comes back from eye surgery. 

Uggla will start from the G-Braves on Monday night when they host the Norfolk Tides in suburban Atlanta.

When he went on the disabled list Aug. 13, Uggla was hitting only .186 with an NL-leading 146 strikeouts. He battled eye problems all season before deciding to have the Lasik procedure.

Tyler Pastornicky initially replaced Uggla in the lineup, but he lasted only two games before a collision with outfielder Jason Heyward left the infielder with a season-ending knee injury. The Braves then claimed Elliot Johnson off waivers from Kansas City to fill the void until Uggla returns.

Atlanta leads the NL East by 13 games.
