    Uggla keyed Memphis' turnaround from 15-37 last year to 34-24 in 2001, providing power for new head coach Dave Anderson. Uggla set a school single-season doubles record and made a run at the home run mark as well. He stays on pitches well and rarely is fooled at the plate. He's an offensive player who saw time at second base, third base, shortstop and catcher for Memphis in his first two seasons before settling in at second base as a junior. He's kind of stocky at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds and has the bat for third base if he needs to move as a pro.
