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. Oct 30 - 11:40 PM

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.
Oct 23 - 12:45 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.
Oct 22 - 5:24 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.
Oct 18 - 5:49 PM

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.
Oct 13 - 4:33 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.
Oct 6 - 1:44 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.
Oct 4 - 12:23 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.
Oct 1 - 10:12 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.
Sep 26 - 1:34 PM

Juan Uribe is considered day-to-day with a chest contusion after X-rays came back negative on Friday.

The veteran infielder was lifted from Friday's game against the Reds after aggravating an existing chest injury. It sounds as though he was able to avoid any significant injury though and should be ready to return to action in a couple of days.
Sep 25 - 11:27 PM

Juan Uribe was removed from Friday's game against the Reds after re-aggravating his chest injury.

Uribe initially sustained a deep chest bruise while diving for a ball during Sunday's game. The injury isn't expected to sideline him for long, so expect him to return to the lineup before the end of the weekend.
Sep 25 - 10:20 PM

Juan Uribe (chest) singled as a pinch-hitter in the Mets' loss to the Braves on Wednesday.

Uribe hadn't appeared in a game since Sunday due to a deep chest bruise. It's clearly nothing too serious. The veteran infielder is batting .220/.303/.433 in 142 plate appearances since joining the NL East-leading Mets.
