The Atlanta Braves have suspended second baseman Dan Uggla for one game without pay. That is just over $80,000 for those doing the math at home.

Uggla’s suspension comes after he was extremely tardy.

The Braves have not been using Uggla much as he has just 18 trips to the plate since the end of May. The veteran second baseman is hitting just .162/.241/.331 on the season.

Uggla is owed the remaining of his $13 million salary this season plus another $13 million in 2015 which is why he remains on the Braves roster.

The Braves are expected to welcome Uggla back to the roster before Friday’s game against Philadelphia.
