Dodgers' Yasmani Grandal not in lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Grandal has started seven of the last eight games behind the plate but will cede catching duties to A.J. Eliis Sunday. Third baseman Juan Uribe is back in the lineup as expected, while Alex Guerrero is in left field for a second straight game but has been moved up to the fifth spot in the order after batting eighth Saturday. It's the first time this season Guerrero has slotted higher than sixth.
The Dodgers are favorites (-145) against the Diamondbacks Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.
Dodgers' Juan Uribe expected to return to lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is expected to be back in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com reports.
Uribe, who is in the midst of an 11-game hitting strea, was not used in either of the team's first two games against the Diamondbacks. He has hit .278/.316/.370 with one home run and four RBI in 54 at-bats.
Jimmy Rollins, Juan Uribe out for Dodgers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) For the second straight game, Justin Turner replaces Juan Uribe at third base for the Dodgers.
Turner will make his fourth start of the year at the hot corner, batting second in the lineup.
The Dodgers also gave a rest to shortstop Jimmy Rollins, who is out of the lineup for just the third time this year. Enrique Hernandez will start just his fourth career game at short, batting eighth in the lineup.
"JT's been swinging good. Alex has been swinging good. Van Slyke's been swinging good. We’ve got a number of guys that are swinging good which is a good problem," manager Don Mattingly said per the Orange County Register." ... It’s a lot easier when you’re winning. I think guys are happier with what’s going on when the team’s playing well."
Uribe's days with Dodgers could be numbered when Olivera arrives
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) With Hector Olivera coming and red-hot Alex Guerrero already on the roster, Juan Uribe's days with the Dodgers may be numbered. According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, Uribe may become available once Olivera arrives and is proven healthy.
Olivera, who signed a six-year deal worth $62.5 million deal, could need Tommy John surgery to repair the elbow once he joins the club.
Uribe has been with the Dodgers since 2011 and is off to a solid start through 17 games, hitting .278 (15 for 54) with two doubles, one home run, four RBI and a .316 on-base percentage.
Dodgers' Howie Kendrick, Juan Uribe back in the lineup Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick and third baseman Juan Uribe are back in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Giants, the team announced.
Kendrick was given Sunday off after playing in 17 consecutive games for Los Angeles. He is hitting .303 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 66 at-bats this season. Uribe is back in the lineup after getting Sunday off as well and is hitting .244 with three RBI in 44 at-bats.
Utility man Alex Guerrero is also out of the lineup Monday even though he's hitting .500 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 22 at-bats this season.
The Dodgers are currently the favorites (-150) against San Francisco.
|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.
