Marlins may finally deal Dan Uggla

Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla is reportedly seeking a five year extension worth 55-60 million dollars, according to the Miami Herald. Uggla, who is on pace to set career highs in batting average and OBP, also has hit 30 home runs for the fourth straight season.

Uggla, 30, has drawn interest from rival clubs in the past, namely the Rockies and Giants. The Marlins are looking to sign Uggla to a three year extension in the 8-10 million dollar range, but it looks like Uggla wants something longer than that.

I'd be surprised if any team would sign Uggla to a five year extension, in large part because he is just a career .262 hitter with relatively high strike out totals. A three year extension seems more reasonable, but if he doesn't sign for that he looks to be heading for free agency after the 2011 season.
