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.
Sep 24 - 8:48 AM

Juan Uribe (chest) is likely unavailable Tuesday.

An MRI taken Monday on Juan Uribe's chest revealed a deep bruise and he was still in some discomfort when he showed up back at Citi Field on Tuesday afternoon. Consider the veteran infielder day-to-day.

Sep 21 - 4:20 PM

Juan Uribe was lifted from Sunday's game against the Yankees with a bruised chest.

Daniel Murphy was called upon to replace him at second base. It's not quite clear how exactly he sustained the injury, but it doesn't seem like it'll keep him out of the lineup for an extended period. Consider him day-to-day.
Sep 20 - 10:23 PM

Juan Uribe finished 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Thursday's win over the Braves.

That Uribe was hitting cleanup against a right-hander for a first-place team is pretty baffling. That it worked out is so very Mets. Uribe is hitting just .220 in 109 at-bats for the Mets, but his 24 hits include five homers and eight doubles and he's driven in 18 runs.
Sep 11 - 1:00 AM

Juan Uribe went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk from the cleanup spot Wednesday against the Rockies.

Uribe is still batting just .196 in 46 at-bats with the Mets, but he's played a big role in a few wins over the last week. There's just not going to be much for him to do if David Wright comes back healthy next week.
Aug 12 - 11:26 PM

Juan Uribe went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Rays.

Since being traded to the Mets at the deadline, Uribe has already posted several big games. He did what he could in a low-scoring affair against the Rays on Friday, hitting a solo home run in the seventh inning to temporarily knot the score at 1-1. The Mets would pull out the eventual win with two runs in the ninth inning. For his part, the veteran third baseman is now hitting .266/.326/.422 with 11 homers and 29 RBI. You could do worse for a utility bench bat in deeper NL-only formats.
Aug 7 - 10:20 PM

Juan Uribe went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run as the Mets escaped with a win against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Uribe added what seemed like superfluous runs in the fifth inning with a three-run home run to make it 7-0, but it turned out to be a crucial contribution. It's his second home run since joining the Mets and his 10th overall along with 28 RBI and a .266/.327/.413 triple-slash line.
