ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Giants have talked to Juan Uribe about a utility role, "but the salary ask has been too expensive for them."
Uribe, who turns 37 in March, had two of his most productive seasons as a Giant back in 2009 and 2010. However, he's also being pursued by the Indians and would likely be in line for quite a bit more playing time with them. Uribe sported a 253/.320/.417 batting line with 14 homers and 43 RBI last season between the Dodgers, Braves, and Mets. Feb 5 - 4:19 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Indians continue to target free agent infielder Juan Uribe.

The two sides were linked about a month ago and it's still a possibility with spring training just a couple of weeks away. If the Indians were to sign Uribe, he'd likely share playing time at third base with Giovanny Urshela. Uribe turns 37 in March and batted 253/.320/.417 with 14 homers and 43 RBI in 119 games last season between the Dodgers, Braves, and Mets.
Feb 2 - 8:22 AM

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Indians have expressed interest in veteran infielder Juan Uribe.

The club is reportedly discussing a one-year deal with Uribe, who would likely share time at third base with Giovanny Urshela. The 36-year-old bounced around during the 2015 campaign, slashing .253/.320/.417 with 14 homers and 43 RBI in 119 games between the Dodgers, Braves and Mets.

Juan Uribe (chest) came through with an RBI single as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning on Friday as the Mets bested the Royals in Game 3 of the World Series.

It was the first game action that Uribe has seen since September 20, but he showed no signs of rust, working himself into a 3-1 count before lining an opposite field single to plate Juan Lagares. He should be a valuable bat off the bench for the remainder of the series.

The Mets will carry Juan Uribe (chest) on their roster for the World Series.

In turn, Matt Reynolds has been removed from the roster. Uribe hasn't played since September 25 due to a bruised chest, but he has shown enough progress in recent days to be on the active roster. Reynolds could be added back to the roster if starting shortstop Wilmer Flores suffers an injury during the series. As of now, the Mets have no solid backup option at shortstop.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that it's possible Juan Uribe (chest) cracks the World Series roster.

Uribe has been sidelined since September 25 with a bruised chest, but he's been making steady progress on the side and traveled with the Mets to Kansas City over the weekend. The veteran infielder would be a nice addition to New York's bench for the best-of-seven Fall Classic. An official decision should come down by Tuesday afternoon.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Juan Uribe (chest) will travel to Kansas City with the team.

No decision on his roster status will be made until Monday, but even if he isn't ready Collins would still like his veteran presence with the team. Uribe has been sidelined since September 20 with a bruised chest.

Juan Uribe (chest) participated in the Mets' workout on Friday.

He's expected to take batting practice on Saturday. While Uribe appears to be making some progress, he remains doubtful to be included on the Mets' World Series roster after being inactive for the last month.
Fri, Oct 23, 2015 12:45:00 PM

Marc Carig of Newsday reports Juan Uribe (chest) is not expected to be on the Mets' World Series roster.

Uribe has been working back from a bruised chest suffered on September 20. He recently began baseball activities, but he's running out of time with the World Series just days away from starting. With David Wright back, Uribe would likely only be a bench bat in the series anyway.
Thu, Oct 22, 2015 05:24:00 PM

Juan Uribe (chest) has begun doing baseball activities and could be an option for the Mets roster should they advance to the World Series.

Uribe, who has been sidelined since September 20 with a bruised chest, has been swinging in the cages and recently began throwing. He was also taking ground balls on the field prior to Sunday's game. He'd be a nice addition to the Mets bench should they advance past the Cubs.

Juan Uribe (chest) has yet to resume baseball activities.

Uribe suffered a chest bruise diving for a ball on September 20 and hasn't made any notable progress. He's not expected to be ready should the Mets advance to the NLCS and would seem to be a question mark should they make it all the way to the World Series.
Tue, Oct 13, 2015 04:33:00 PM

Juan Uribe (chest) will miss the NLDS against the Dodgers.

It's not a big surprise, as Uribe suffered a chest bruise diving for a ball on September 20 and has seen little in the way of improvement. His absence will likely clear the way for Kirk Nieuwenhuis to make the roster. The Mets haven't ruled Uribe out for future rounds of the playoffs.
Tue, Oct 6, 2015 01:44:00 PM

Juan Uribe (chest) remains unable to do physical activities.

Uribe is still dealing with a deep chest bruise that he suffered while diving for a ball on September 20. He's a long shot for the NLDS roster and is a question mark for any subsequent series should the Mets advance.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 12:23:00 PM

Juan Uribe (chest) has shown very little improvement and now looks doubtful for the NLDS.

Uribe suffered a deep chest bruise while diving for a ball on September 20 and then aggravated the injury a few days later. He'll visit a specialist in New York on Thursday and hope to get some answers, but it sounds like an extended period of rest is the only cure here.
Thu, Oct 1, 2015 10:12:00 AM

There is concern within the Mets organization that Juan Uribe (chest) may not be ready in time for the National League Division Series.

Uribe is listed as day-to-day with his chest injury. While X-rays revealed no structural damage on Friday, he's still in a good deal of pain and it's going to be awhile before he's ready to return to the lineup.
