Juan Uribe (hamstring) ran the bases without any pain on Friday, and remains on track to return to the Dodgers lineup when first eligible on Saturday.
The veteran third baseman has been taking batting practice all week without any issues, and running the bases was the final hurdler that he needed to clear before given the go-ahead to return. Justin Turner has been filling in during Uribe's absence, and will be relegated back to a bench role upon his return. Aug 29 - 7:13 PM

Date:

Juan Uribe (hamstring) is likely to be ready to be activated when first eligible on Saturday.

Uribe has been taking batting practice without issue. The third baseman may need a shot rehab assignment, but either way it appears he'll be back with the club before September.
Aug 27 - 7:56 PM

Juan Uribe (hamstring) took batting practice before Wednesday's game.

Uribe was reported to be "feeling better" on Tuesday, and the fact that he's progressed to baseball activities is a good sign. Uribe hit the shelf on Saturday, but it seems he'll be back sooner than later. A return in early September appears possible.
Aug 20 - 11:13 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Juan Uribe (hamstring) is "feeling better."

"Uribe is feeling better," Mattingly said. "Mostly inside work, doing a little bit of baseball stuff. He'll be progressing toward the field, a lot like the first time he hurt it." Uribe missed a month of action the last time he tweaked his hamstring, so he could still be a ways away if he's on a similar timetable.
Aug 19 - 10:12 PM

Dodgers placed INF Juan Uribe on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

Uribe suffered the hamstring strain on Friday night and will miss the rest of August. Justin Turner is starting at the hot corner for the Dodgers on Saturday versus the Brewers and Carlos Triunfel has been called up from Triple-A Albuquerque to add infield depth.
Aug 16 - 8:57 PM

Juan Uribe (hamstring) expects to be placed on the 15-day disabled list soon.

Uribe strained his right hamstring on Friday night. Justin Turner is starting at third base for Los Angeles on Saturday and will probably be the Dodgers' primary option there for the remainder of August.
Aug 16 - 6:01 PM

Juan Uribe (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday versus the Brewers.

Uribe left Friday's game with right hamstring tightness. Earlier in June he was on the disabled list for a strain to the same hamstring. This could get worse, but he is considered day-to-day for now.
Aug 16 - 5:42 PM

Juan Uribe came out of Friday's game with right hamstring tightness.

The Dodgers said it was a precautionary move, and that Uribe is day-to-day. He was on the DL back in June because of a strain to the same hamstring.
Aug 16 - 1:13 AM

Juan Uribe collected two hits against the Angels on Tuesday, including a three-run home run.

Uribe hit the second inning shot off of Angels starter Hector Santiago. It was Uribe's sixth home run of the season. The third baseman isn't much of a power source, but he's giving the Dodgers solid production at the hot corner. Uribe is slashing .297/.325/.416. His .297 average is just a shade off his career high, which he set during his rookie year way back in 2001.
Aug 6 - 1:56 AM

Juan Uribe had a three-hit day against the Rockies on Sunday, finishing 3-for-5 with an RBI.

Uribe had an RBI single in the Dodgers' five-run fifth inning, his 24th RBI of the year. The third baseman has eight hits in his last 19 at-bats to raise his season line to .296/.328/.423.
Jul 6 - 11:33 PM

Juan Uribe singled in the winning run, going 3-for-4 overall, in Thursday's win against the Rockies at Coors Field.

Uribe has hit the skids since coming off of the disabled list on June 26, but bounced back with a three-hit night on Thursday. His ninth-inning single off of LaTroy Hawkins broke a 2-2 tie and allowed Kenley Jansen to save Zack Greinke's 11th win. Despite the recent slump, Uribe is still having a productive season, slashing .299/.333/.437 with four home runs and 22 RBI in 186 plate appearances.
Jul 3 - 11:15 PM

In his return to the lineup, Juan Uribe went 1-for-3 with a run scored in a 1-0 win against the Cardinals on Thursday.

A right hamstring injury shelved Uribe between May 20 and now. His return makes Justin Turner a bench player again, but the utility player will force his way back into consistent bats if he keeps getting game-winning hits, as he did tonight in the role of pinch-hitter. Uribe sports a solid .303/.331/.452 slash line, though a lot of that damage came in April.
Jun 27 - 12:55 AM

Dodgers activated 3B Juan Uribe from the 15-day disabled list.

Uribe got through a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga recently with no issues, clearing the way for him to return to the lineup. The third baseman has been on the shelf since May 20 with a right hamstring injury.
Jun 26 - 7:12 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Juan Uribe (hamstring) is expected to be activated on Thursday.

Uribe has been out since May 20 with the right hamstring injury, but he's been rehabbing at High-A Rancho Cucamonga in recent days. His return will likely push Justin Turner to the bench, but Turner has filled in admirably at the hot corner in Uribe's absence. It's feasible that Uribe could be eased in over the first week while Turner remains productive.
Jun 25 - 6:41 PM

Juan Uribe (hamstring) will remain on his rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga through at least Monday.

The Dodgers had been hoping to activate Uribe for Monday's game, but they've apparently decided to keep him on his rehab assignment a while longer. Uribe should be back with the big club later this week.
