The Giants are making a run at Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla, MLB.com is reporting. Uggla is coming off his third straight thirty homer season, but has lacked when it comes to average posting a .243 batting average, the lowest of his career.

However, Uggla did improve his patience at the plate, walking a career high 92 times and striking out 21 fewer times than in 2008.
The Marlins are expected to have a high asking price for Uggla, but the Giants could offer a starting pitcher like Jonathan Sanchez, or a package of minor leaguers.
