Date:

Mets acquired INF Juan Uribe, INF/OF Kelly Johnson and cash considerations from the Braves for RHP John Gant and RHP Robert Whalen.

Uribe will function as the Mets everyday third baseman while David Wright is sidelined. The 36-year-old still has pop in his bat and was slashing a healthy .285/.353/.464 with seven bombs and 17 RBI in 46 games with the Braves after coming over from the Dodgers. He also adds a strong veteran presence to the Mets clubhouse.
Jul 24 - 11:34 PM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Braves have agreed to deal with the Mets to acquire Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson in exchange for minor league right-handers John Gant and Robert Whalen.

Uribe should slot in as the everyday third baseman in New York until David Wright returns, and Kelly Johnson upgrades the bench with his power and versatility. It's a nice low-cost move for Sandy Alderson to add some much needed punch to the Mets struggling offense.
Jul 24 - 7:28 PM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Mets are closing in on a deal to acquire Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson from the Braves.

It's unclear what the Mets would have to part with in such a deal, but it presumably wouldn't involve any top prospects. While not major impact players, each would improve the Mets offense and overall versatility.
Jul 24 - 6:52 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets have discussed a trade involving Juan Uribe with the Braves.

Uribe is hitting .279/.346/.456 with seven homers over 44 games since the Braves acquired him and also plays a good third base. He would make sense as the Mets look to add a bat, although it would mean moving Daniel Murphy back to second base. Heyman says that the Braves want a mid-range prospect for Uribe and for the acquiring team to pick up the roughly $3 million remaining on his deal. The latter could be an issue for the Mets, as it appears they're not looking to take on much salary.

Juan Uribe went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

Uribe unloaded for his eighth bomb of the year in the second inning, when he took Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa deep for a solo homer. With a career triple-slash of .257/.302/.421, Uribe's current .280/.335/.425 line looks pretty good, especially considering that the veteran infielder is 36 years old.
Jul 11 - 8:40 PM

Juan Uribe hit a go-ahead solo home run in the seventh inning of Friday's 2-1 win over the Phillies.

Uribe's solo shot off of Adam Morgan in the seventh inning snapped a 1-1 tie and served as the final run to score in the game. The bomb was his seventh of the season and gave him 18 RBI for the year. A dependable, if unspectacular, player throughout his career, Uribe is currently hitting a dependable, if unspectacular, .279/.330/.426.
Jul 3 - 10:50 PM

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.
Jun 30 - 10:37 PM

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.
