ATLANTA (AP) - Braves general manager Frank Wren and his staff will discuss looming decisions on two free agents, catcher Brian McCann and pitcher Tim Hudson, in organizational meetings this week in Orlando.
Two more players to be discussed are Dan Uggla and B.J. Upton, who lost starting jobs this season.
Wren said Monday he still feels the disappointment of Atlanta's NL division series loss to the Dodgers. He says the team "took a step forward" by winning 96 games and the NL East division title.
Upton and Uggla each hit below .200. Wren says Uggla, who was left off the playoff roster, must "perform better. That's plain and simple."
Wren says he expects improvement from Upton, who he says tried to play up to the biggest free-agent contract in team history.
