Juan Uribe homered in the ninth inning to prevent the Braves from suffering a shutout loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

The Braves entered the ninth inning down 6-0, but Uribe at least saved his team the indignity of a shutout, launching a solo home run to left field off of former Brave David Carpenter. Uribe has homered twice in his last three games, but has mostly struggled this season. Including his time with the Dodgers, he has five home runs, 16 RBI, and a .279/.333/.397 triple-slash line.

Juan Uribe blasted his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday.

Uribe's solo shot off Francisco Liriano tied the game at 2-2 in the sixth inning, but that wound up being the extent of the team's offense in the ballgame. He finished the night 2-for-3 and also drew a walk and is now slashing .275/.332/.380 with four homers and 15 RBI on the season.
Jun 26 - 11:03 PM

Juan Uribe went 3-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

The Braves didn't muster much offense in this one until a too-little-too-late, four-hit, two-run rally in the ninth inning. Uribe has been quite productive since landing with Atlanta via trade, batting .328 with a couple homers over 19 games.
Jun 16 - 7:27 PM

Juan Uribe went 3-for-4 with a homer, a walk and three runs scored against the Giants on Saturday.

He even stole a base. The guess here is that the Dodgers will eventually regret trading Uribe for a collection of spare parts. He's still a pretty solid option as a regular third baseman.
May 31 - 2:12 AM

Juan Uribe is in the Braves' lineup against the Dodgers Wednesday, batting fifth and playing third base.

Uribe didn't have to travel far after Wednesday's trade, simply walking to the Braves' locker room as the Dodgers host Uribe's new club. With third baseman Chris Johnson returning from the disabled list on Wednesday afternoon, Uribe will likely fill a part-time role with the Braves moving forward.
May 27 - 6:36 PM

Braves acquired 3B Juan Uribe and RHP Chris Withrow from the Dodgers for INF Alberto Callaspo, LHP Eric Stults, LHP Ian Thomas, and RHP Juan Jaime.

Uribe's decline has accelerated in his age-36 season and he's doubtful to take on significant fantasy relevance with a change of scenery. The veteran had hit just .247/.287/.309 with one home run and six RBI in 29 games for the Dodgers. Getting him out of Los Angeles allows Alex Guerrero to become an everyday player.
May 27 - 5:00 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that trade a between the Dodgers and Braves involving Juan Uribe and Alberto Callaspo is "done," pending approval by the commissioner’s office.

It was reported earlier Tuesday that Callaspo rejected the trade, but now Rosenthal is saying he waived his right to reject any deal prior to June 15. Rosenthal says it would be a six-player trade, and he thinks Trevor Cahill and/or Eric Stults could be one of the players going to the Dodgers.

Mark Bowman of MLB.com writes that the Braves could still have interest in acquiring Juan Uribe from the Dodgers, even after the Alberto Callaspo deal fell through.

Callaspo chose to reject a trade to the Dodgers, as was his right as a player who signed a free agent contract over the winter. However, the Braves clearly like Uribe and there still might be momentum to get a deal done. The 36-year-old has taken on a diminished role with the Dodgers of late.
May 26 - 1:25 PM

Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that the potential Juan Uribe/Alberto Callaspo swap between the Dodgers and Braves has "lost traction."

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal wrote that the deal on the table had Uribe and a minor leaguer going to the Braves for Callaspo and three minor leaguers, but Bowman now hears that nothing is imminent. It's unclear why talks have hit a snag, but Callaspo has the ability to veto a trade until June 15 since he signed as a free agent over the winter.
May 26 - 12:18 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are talking to the Braves about a deal involving Juan Uribe and Alberto Callaspo.

No specifics yet, but Uribe and a minor leaguer would go to the Braves for Callaspo and three minor leaguers. Rosenthal hears from one source that the deal was close to being completed as of Monday night, which explains why Callaspo was a late-scratch from the Braves' lineup. Callaspo doesn't have much value to the Dodgers, but moving Uribe would officially clear the way for Alex Guerrero, Justin Turner, and Scott Van Slyke to take on more pronounced roles. Uribe, 36, is batting just .247/.287/.309 with one home run and six RBI through 87 plate appearances this season and is making $6.5 million. Because Callaspo signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Braves as a free agent over the winter, he has the ability to veto any trade until June 15.
May 26 - 10:48 AM

Juan Uribe is not in the Dodgers' lineup Wednesday.

Justin Turner is getting a second straight start at third base after going 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI on Tuesday. Turner has been much better than Uribe this season and could continue to grab a larger share of the playing time at the hot corner. Alex Guerrero is also in the mix for playing time at third.
May 6 - 4:13 PM

Juan Uribe's first homer of the season was a two-run shot off the Padres' Chris Rearick on Saturday.

Uribe is being pushed by Alex Guerrero and Justin Turner at third, but he still has his glove working to his advantage, meaning he shouldn't have to match the numbers of the other two in order to remain a regular. And it should probably be acknowledged that he did hit .311/.337/.440 in 386 at-bats last season.
Apr 26 - 12:34 AM

Juan Uribe (hamstring) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

Uribe missed the last couple games after tweaking his left hamstring Saturday, but he's obviously feeling well enough to give it a go now. The third baseman sports a .231/.286/.231 batting line in the early going.
Apr 14 - 6:29 PM

Juan Uribe said he's fine to play after testing out his left hamstring prior to Sunday's game.

Uribe isn't starting after tweaking the hamstring Saturday, but it seems like he'll be available off the bench. Alex Guerrero is filling in at the hot corner.
