ATLANTA -- Braves second baseman Dan Uggla, a three-time All-Star, says he is "disappointed and upset" to be left off the NL division series roster.

Uggla hit only .179 with 22 homers and ranked third in the NL with 171 strikeouts. His struggles continued following laser eye surgery in August. He hit .083 in August and .112 in September.

Uggla didn't speak to reporters on Wednesday, when the roster was announced.

He said before Thursday night's game "it hurts" to not be part of the effort to advance to the NLCS.

Uggla was embraced by Dodgers players during batting practice.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez says he hopes Uggla travels with the team to Los Angeles after Game 2 of the series on Friday night.
