Indians released INF Juan Uribe.
The Indians designated the veteran infielder for assignment earlier in the week, and it looks as though he isn't interested in accepting a minor league assignment. With all of the injuries that the Mets are dealing with, perhaps a return to New York could be in his future. Fri, Aug 5, 2016 08:41:00 PM

Indians designated 3B Juan Uribe for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-acquired Brandon Guyer on the 40-man roster. Jose Ramirez figures to take over as the regular third baseman in Cleveland. Uribe has disappointed with a .206/.259/.332 batting line over 73 games this season.

X-rays on Juan Uribe's injured hand came back negative.

Manager Terry Francona said he's still getting worked on by the training staff. Uribe probably won't be in the lineup Sunday but it looks like he'll avoid the disabled list. He went 0-for-2 Saturday as the Indians watched their club record 14-game winning streak come to an end.

Juan Uribe was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Blue Jays after being hit by a pitch on his wrist.

He picked up an RBI for his pain, as the bases were full when he was plunked. He'll presumably head for X-rays to see if there's any structural damage. Expect an update from the club on his status shortly.

Juan Uribe hit a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Uribe has now somehow homered in four straight games after hitting just two in his first 48 contests. The veteran third baseman is still batting just .236/.288/.385 with those six homers and 20 RBI on the year.

Juan Uribe hit a home run in his third straight game Monday, and the Indians bested the Rays 7-4.

Uribe had two home runs in his first 48 games before belting three in the last three days. Monday's was a two-run blast in the eighth inning to extend the Indians' lead. Uribe now has five homers and 19 RBI to go with a .235/.289/.371 line overall.

Juan Uribe went 3-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Here's to hoping Uribe played the lottery after the game, as the number three was apparently his lucky number Saturday. It was even more unlikely considering Uribe had just two hits in 28 June at-bats coming into the game. The home run was his third of the year, and the 37-year-old is batting just .228/.285/.327 on the season.

Juan Uribe (groin) is not in Monday's lineup versus the Royals.

Uribe was carted off the field Sunday after he took a ground ball off a very sensitive area. He made it back from the hospital in time to catch the flight to Kansas City and even played catch Monday afternoon, but he'll get some rest for now.

Juan Uribe was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Angels on a golf cart after taking a hard ground ball from Mike Trout off of his groin area.

That will certainly ruin his weekend. Uribe was understandably on the ground for a while and in serious pain before being helped onto the golf cart and wheeled off the field. It would be a surprise to see him in the lineup in the next couple of days.
Sun, Jun 12, 2016 05:16:00 PM

Juan Uribe went 2-for-4 with a run scored in a win over the Reds on Thursday.

Uribe had just three hits in his previous 28 at-bats coming into the game. He continues to start the majority of the team's games at third base despite his .215/.288/.280 line, but Jose Ramirez has been getting some playing time at the hot corner of late. The 37-year-old will need some more multi-hit games if he wants to keep drawing regular starts.
