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.
Was told by couple of people familiar with situation that #Braves Uggla showed up about an hour before Saturday's 3:05 p.m. game.

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.
