Uggla, hitting only .186 with a National League-leading 146 strikeouts, has battled eye problems throughout the season and has experimented with contact lenses. Uggla said the eye surgery "was a mutual decision." "Obviously, I dont want to go on the DL whatsoever, but at the same time weve got to do whats best for the team right now," he said. "Ive been struggling pretty bad and battling with the contacts and grinding with these things day in and day out. I think the best thing to do it go ahead and so it now." Until Tuesday, Ugglas goal had been to postpone the procedure until the off-season. "They approached me with it today and as much as I wanted to argue and be like You cant do this, at the same time theres got to be production out there on that field and I havent been doing it," Uggla said. "So its tough for me to make an argument when I want to do whats right for this team." Uggla said he expects to have the procedure as soon as possible and miss only two weeks. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Uggla will have time to adjust before the post-season. The Braves lead the NL East by 14 games. Nike Air Max 90 Essential Billig Kaufen. "When this procedure works, and I do say when because of the success rate, we may see a guy who all of a sudden is a new player," Gonzalez said. "So thats encouraging for me." Tyler Pastornicky was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett and will start at second base in Tuesday nights game against the Phillies. Gonzalez said veteran utility infielder Paul Janish may be used as a late-inning defensive replacement for Pastornicky. Uggla hit .250 in June and has been below .200 every other month this season. His struggles got worse in August, when he had only two hits in 37 at-bats (.054). Despite the low batting average, Uggla ranks second on the team with 21 homers, good for sixth in the National League, and third with 53 RBIs. He ranks fourth in the NL with 62 walks. Braves catcher Brian McCann has gone through similar vision problems. He had his first Lasik surgery in 2007 and had another procedure he called an "enhancement" in 2010. McCann also tried contacts before finally opting for the surgery. McCann, who is Ugglas clubhouse neighbour, said the second baseman "exhausted every avenue" with contacts and different eye drops. "I think this is the best thing for him," McCann said. "I think its going to work." ' ' '

Wednesday kicked off the official start of Montreal Canadiens training camp with the players undergoing team medicals. Jaromir Jagr Jersey . For one player, in particular, having a good performance at this camp will be extremely important. Louis Leblanc didnt have the year he would have liked with the Hamilton Bulldogs last season. After being sidelined with a high ankle sprain Leblanc had difficulties trying to get his game going again: he had 10 goals and eight assists in 62 games in the AHL and played no games with the Canadiens. "When you go into the corners you never really trust your ankle the way you did before" Leblanc said about coming back from his injury, but he did say he was able to put that injury behind him this summer. Habs general manager Marc Bergevin acknowledged at his season-ending press conference that Leblanc did take a step back last season compared to the previous year, where he played 42 games with the Canadiens. Leblanc, a local boy from Kirkland, a suburb of Montreal, was selected 18th overall at the 2009 Draft that was held in Montreal at the Bell Centre. One can only imagine what the pressure is like for this young hockey player to succeed. Therefore, Leblanc has decided to work on his mental game with the help of a few different sports psychologists: Dr. Sylvain Guimond, who is the Habs sports psychologist, Dr. David Scott who works with the Hamilton Bulldogs and Dr. Wayne Halliwell. "When youre younger you dont realize that the mental part of the game is important as well," Leblanc told the media. With Brian Gionta and George Parros both recovering from injuries and questionable for the start of the season, there is a possibility that if Leblanc has a good showing at this camp he might earn himself a spot back with the big club. Other Camp Notes: Tomas Plekanec arrived in Montreal on Tuesday after missing the Canadiens annual golf tournament last week due to the passing of his father. Plekanec, being an only child, stayed back in his native Czech Republic for a little longer than usual to be with his mother during this difficult time. Brendan Gallagher will continue to live with Josh Gorges once again this season. Gorges got married this summer in Hawaii.

The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season.

Making his third start since replacing Tim Lincecum in the rotation, Petit (5-3) faced just two more than the minimum and matched his season high of nine strikeouts. The right-hander needed only 84 pitches to finish the gem, the fewest in a nine-inning complete game by any pitcher in the majors this season. Petit, who threw 26 first-pitch strikes, came within one out of a perfect game against the Diamondbacks on Sept. 6, 2013. Leadoff hitter Angel Pagan had four hits and scored twice. Joe Panik went 5 for 5 and Gregor Blanco added two singles to help San Francisco win its seventh straight home game. Overall, the Giants have won 10 of 13. Ender Inciarte homered leading off the fourth to end Arizonas seven-game homerless drought, but manager Kirk Gibsons club managed only three hits the rest of the way. The Diamondbacks have lost four straight. The Giants stranded seven runners in the first three innings but took advantage of control problems by starter Wade Miley (7-11) Andrew Susac drew a bases-loaded walk in the first inning and Pablo Sandoval did the same thing in the second. Pagan scored both times. Buster Posey also drove in a run in the second when Diamondbacks first baseman Mark Trumbo couldnt handle a bounced throw from shortstop Didi Grregorius, who was trying to complete a double play. Kris Letang Jersey . . Miley, winless since July 30, gave up three runs and five hits in two innings. He walked four and struck out one. Gregor Blanco singled and scored on an error by Inciarte in left field. Posey added a sacrifice fly to make it 5-0. Petit did the rest in his best start since his near-miss against Arizona a year ago. He retired his first nine hitters — five by strikeout — before Inciarte went deep. The ball landed in McCovey Cove, the 101st splash hit since AT&T Park opened in 2000. Petit also singled in the second — his first hit of the season — and scored on Poseys grounder.
