Braves general manager Frank Wren doesn’t seem concerned.

“We literally have a year to put this together,” he said. “Not that he really thinks it’s going to take that long. I don’t see any reason not to do it. He was the top guy on our list.”

Uggla understands that it might take a while to work out a long-term contract with the Braves.

“I’m sure everyone wants to have as much information as they can about their investment before they make it,” he said. “You want to be in a place where you’re going to be happy. I think with the talks that we’re going to have, getting to know each other the next few weeks, we’ll be able to find out a lot.”
