JUAN URIBE RUMORS & GOSSIP
Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti (mlb.com)
Entering the offseason many envisioned the Los Angeles Dodgers would be big spenders and extremely active.
The winter meetings have come and gone, but the Dodgers have been relatively quiet.
Outside of re-signing key contributors J.P Howell, Juan Uribe, and Brian Wilson, the Dodgers have yet to make a big splash.
It looks like Juan Uribe is returning to the Dodgers.The free-agent third baseman, who was seeking a three-year deal on the open market, agreed to a two-year, 15-million contract Saturday, according to MLB.com, citing sources.Uribe's return fills a significant gap in the infield for the Dodgers, who would have had to consider moving Hanley Ramirez from shortstop to third base...
In a move that was overdue, the Dodgers on Saturday re-signed Juan Uribe to a 2-year contract. It's the smart, somewhat safe play, but I find myself feeling a touch disappointed about this deal.Uribe had been holding out for three years. As the best free agent third baseman, he would have been foolish not to. He drew alleged interest from the Marlins, Rays and White Sox.I'...
As the Winter Meetings approach, the Los Angeles Dodgers could end up making the most noise trade-wise. After outfielder Matt Kemp's agent Dave Stewart said recently that he has a 'strong feeling' that something may happen at the meetings, the team's general manager Ned Colletti has now gone on record to confirm that he is open to dealing one of his four outfielders...
Juan Uribe‘s 2011 and 2012 campaigns with the Dodgers were so bad that he could have easily been cut heading into the 2013 season and nobody would have been able to argue against such a move. What a difference a year makes.
Uribe was still with the club when the season opened, but he was sent to the bench in favor of 2012 flavor of the month Luis Cruz. After an early...
When you think about bad contracts the Dodgers have made, you seem to pin point Juan Uribe. The Dodgers will have paid him by the end of his contract $21 million dollars. He is one of the most expensive bench players around the league. Honestly this guy is out of his golden days, and really was not worth $21 million, nor half of that. Let’s just hope the Ned doesn’t make another...
It's no secret I've been against the Juan Uribe deal since he signed with the team two winters ago. I'm not usually in the business of saying "I told you so," but, well, it's quite fitting at this time.
Uribe is mired in a miserable slump (yes, even more miserable than his Dodger career totals). Since rejoining the team from injury on June 11, he&...
MILWAUKEE -- Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe has a sore left wrist and will miss Thursday's series finale against the Brewers at Miller Park.
The injury was disclosed before the game by Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly, who said he first heard about it during the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to Milwaukee on Wednesday night.
"They came to me like in the seventh inning and said Uribe...
