Struggling Braves second baseman Dan Uggla has been suspended for one game by the team.

The team announced the suspension on its Twitter feed, but gave no further details.

Braves Manager Fredi Gonzalez would only say it was an “internal matter.”

The 34-year old Columbia, Tennessee native has struggled mightily this season hitting only .162 with 2 homers and has been replaced in the lineup by Tommy LaStella who was promoted from Triple-A.
