Updated: August 29, 2013

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) – Atlanta Braves second baseman Dan Uggla was
activated off the 15-day disabled list after recovering from eye surgery for
Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Indians and went 1-for-3 with a walk.

Diagnosed with astigmatism in spring training, Uggla first experimented with
contact lenses before undergoing LASIK surgery on Aug. 16, three days after
going on the disabled list.

In 112 games before his DL stint, Uggla hit just .186 with 21 homers and 53
runs batted in. He homered in a minor league rehab game on Tuesday.

The Braves optioned outfielder Todd Cunningham to Triple-A Gwinnett to open a
roster spot.
