JUAN URIBE RUMORS & GOSSIP
What Happened In 2014: At age 35, Juan Uribe managed to post another excellent season, both with the bat and with the glove. Buoyed by a career-high .368 BABIP, Uribe slashed .311/.337/.440/.777. In the field he was +13 runs by UZR, +17 runs by DRS, and +8 by FRAA, so he’s a plus defender regardless of metric, and I think...
That’s not a typo in the headline. Veteran infielder Juan Uribe will be the Los Angeles Dodgers’ manager for their season finale against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.
Juan Uribe will manage the Dodgers tomorrow, Don Mattingly said. Kershaw pitching coach. — Pedro Moura (@pedromoura) September 27, 2014
That last tweet was not a joke, folks. — Pedro Moura (@pedromoura)...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have wrapped up the NL West. The Colorado Rockies aren’t playing for anything. So, Sunday’s game between the two is meaningless outside of players getting one last chance to add to their season stats. With both teams largely going through the motions, the Dodgers will take the opportunity to switch things […]
I think I missed this the other day, but the September issue of Dodger Insider magazine came out, and it’s great and you should read it. Obviously, I’m totally biased here, because Jon Weisman manages the publication, and I have an article in it, so let’s not pretend there’s impartiality. Still, it’s good, and if you want team-sponsored material that comes from smart people...
Hey, remember that guy up above? It’s our old friend Juan Uribe — yep, still sounds weird to say that — and we haven’t seen him in over a month thanks to a hamstring injury. He’s been rehabbing at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, and is expected to be activated tomorrow when the Dodgers return home to face the Cardinals.
When he rejoins the roster, a move is going to have to...
Juan Uribe has been getting a lot of praise for his offense so far this year. And rightfully so: Uribe currently leads the Dodgers’ batters in wRC+. However, he’s taken an unusual path to get there. So far this season, Uribe has not drawn a single walk. Including last year’s postseason (when he didn’t draw any walks either), Uribe has gone 101 plate appearances since his...
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. Now...
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'm disappointed...

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 - Kemp, Carl...
