Uggla on brink of 100 RBIs

Dan Uggla is on the brink of joining an exclusive Marlins’ club.

With his next RBI, he will place himself on the franchise’s 100 RBI list. In their history, the benchmark has been reached 14 times.

The 99 RBIs by Uggla are the most of any National League second baseman. Robinson Cano of the Yankees has 105, which tops all MLB second basemen.

Uggla is having a career season across the board, and he’s already topped his season best for RBIs. Previously it was 92 in 2008.

Preston Wilson holds the franchise record with 121, posted in 2000. A year ago, Hanley Ramirez (106) and Jorge Cantu (100) reached the century mark.

* Preston Wilson, 121, 2000
