Juan Uribe will start at third
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (3/21/2013) The Dodgers will open the season with Juan Uribe at third base, CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman reported.

Uribe wants to prove worth
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (2/21/2013) The Los Angeles Times reports Luis Cruz heads into spring training games as the lead candidate to emerge as the Dodgers' starting third baseman, but he will receive competition from Juan Uribe, who has disappointed in his first few years with the Dodgers. "That's the reality," Uribe said. "As the whole world knows, I have to show something to the coaches, to the players. I have to show them that I can still do the job. In these two years, I couldn't do what I thought I could do. I haven't been able to do what they've expected me to do. This is a new year. I'm going to try to do better."
