Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe back in the starting lineup
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is back in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Giants, the team announced.
Uribe was out of the lineup for the last two day and has only started two of the last nine games for Los Angeles. He is hitting .247 with six RBI in 77 at-bats this season. The Dodgers are currently the favorites (-105) against San Francisco.
With surplus of third basemen, Dodgers could look to trade Uribe
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/15/15) Would the Dodgers consider shopping third baseman Juan Uribe? It may not be out of the question, once new Cuban-import Hector Olivera passes his upcoming physical and finalizes his contract. With Olivera on board, the Dodgers will have a surplus of quality third basemen, with the aformentioned Olivera and Uribe, along with Justin Turner and Alex Guerrero.
As CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman notes, Guerrero can opt-out of his current contract at the end of the season if he is dealt, making a deal unlikely. The Dodgers would like to hang on to Turner thanks to his versatility. So of the quartet, Urbie seems the likliest to be dealt (that's if the Dodgers decide to make any deals).
Uribe, who is batting .247 in a part-time role in 2015, is scheduled to be a free agent after the season, so any team looking for a short-term piece at third base could look to the Dodgers for a possible fit.

|(5/14/15) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies.
Uribe will be making his first start since facing the Rockies in Colorado Friday. He has hit .257/.293/.329 with one home run and six RBI in 70 at-bats.
With Uribe and left fielder Scott Van Slyke in the lineup, Alex Guerrero is coming off the bench Thursday.
The Dodgers are heavy favorites (-210) at home Thursday, per VegasInsider.com.
Don Mattingly says strong play of Alex Guerrero complicates 3B mix
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted Tuesday that the strong play of Alex Guerrero has complicated his plans for third base this season, according to MLB.com.
Guerrero has split his time this season between third and left field, hitting .326 with six homers and 14 RBI in 46 at-bats.
Juan Uribe (.261, 1 HR, 6 RBI) and Justin Turner (.309, 5 HR, 13 RBI) have also seen significant time at third for the Dodgers this season.
Juan Uribe misses third straight start for Dodgers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is out of the starting lineup for the third straight game.
It's the second time this year that Uribe has missed three straight at third base. He also sat out April 11 through 13.
Alex Guerrero gets the start at third for the second time in three games and the sixth time this season. He's batting fifth.
|2014 summary: Hamstring injuries limited Juan Uribe to 103 games last season, but the Dodgers' third baseman was fairly productive when he was in the lineup. He batted a career-high .311, and remarkably, he hit .383 on ground balls. Uribe's 54 RBI were also his highest total in four years, but with only nine home runs, he is still far removed from his peak power years with the White Sox and Giants.|
Playing time status: Last season, Uribe's hamstring issues sent him to the disabled list twice, and he has played in more than 110 games only once in his four years as a Dodger. There is little reason to expect Uribe to change the pattern this season.
2015 outlook: Uribe's high batting average last season, particularly on ground balls, looked fluky, but it's worth noting that it was the second straight season in which he had batted above .300 on grounders. Still, Uribe could be headed for some serious regression, and his power skills could continue to decline. He should be drafted strictly in NL-only leagues.
