According to a source confirmed to ESPN's Jim Bowden, Dan Uggla has agreed to terms on a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants.

This move came just three days after he was released by the Atlanta Braves, and Uggla will be designated to Triple-A Fresno.

In his forth season with the Braves, Uggla was batting a .162 with two home runs which also included 10 RBI's in 48 games and 130 at bats. 

Uggla is a three time NL All-Star where he hit a .179 with 22 home runs and 55 RBI's last year. Last summer he went under the knife for corrective eye surgery, and struggled greatly that proceeded to leave him off of the post season roster. He lost the job to Elliot Johnson who was claimed over the waiver list in August. 

The Braves decided to take him back on at the start of spring training just this past year, but he only hit a .212 in April and a .080 in 25 at-bats during May.
