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.
Jun 20 - 10:41 PM

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.
Jun 18 - 11:58 PM

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.
Jun 13 - 5:27 PM

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.
Jun 12 - 5:16 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.
May 19 - 10:21 PM

Juan Uribe is not in the Indians' lineup Friday.

He and Jose Ramirez have been sharing time at third base pretty evenly, and Ramirez is at the hot corner Friday. Uribe is hitting only .224/.333/.328 so far this season.
May 6 - 3:18 PM

Juan Uribe went 3-for-4 with a walk in Friday’s loss to the Mets.

Uribe came into Friday’s action just 1-for-19 on the season, so of course he reached base four times against his former team. The 37-year-old cranked 14 home runs with a .737 OPS last season and is a popular clubhouse presence around MLB, so he should have some leash at third base as long as he’s healthy. Giovanny Urshela could eventually threaten for the starting job, but he hasn’t exactly been knocking the cover off the ball in the minors.
Apr 15 - 11:58 PM

Juan Uribe cranked his first home run of the spring Sunday in the Indians' 10-3 rout of the Brewers.

Uribe went deep in the fifth inning off Brewers starter Taylor Jungmann. He also had a single in the sixth. Uribe is expected to open the 2016 regular season as the Indians' starter at third base, though youngster Giovanny Urshela will be breathing down his neck.
Mar 27 - 7:13 PM

Juan Uribe will return to Indians' camp on Sunday after dealing with visa issues in his native Dominican Republic.

Uribe has missed over a week of action all told, which isn't ideal but shouldn't affect the veteran third baseman. He should be thrown into game action in a few days.
Mar 18 - 1:42 PM

Juan Uribe has returned to the Dominican Republic in order to deal with a visa issue.

Uribe was late reporting to camp because of a visa problem, and evidently it hasn't been fully addressed. It shouldn't be a big deal, though, as he's expected to return in a few days.
Mar 13 - 11:15 AM

Juan Uribe was 2-for-3 with a run scored Thursday against the Padres in Cactus League action.

Uribe recently latched on with the Indians on a one-year, $4 million deal and is expected to serve as the team's primary third baseman in 2016, which likely means that Giovanny Urshela is headed back to the minors. The soon-to-be 37-year-old cranked 14 home runs with a .737 OPS in 397 plate appearances last season between the Dodgers, Braves, and Mets, so there could be some sneaky value here in deeper fantasy formats.
Mar 10 - 5:58 PM

Juan Uribe is expected to leave Indians camp in the next few days to resolve a visa issue.

It shouldn't be a long delay. Uribe signed a one-year, $4 million free agent contract with the Indians in late February and projects to open the 2016 season as their starting third baseman. That likely pushes defensive wizard Giovanny Urshela back to Triple-A Columbus.
Mar 10 - 12:55 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Juan Uribe might DH in Monday's "B" game against the Reds.

Uribe didn't join the Indians until last week so he's getting a late start. He should be cleared for Grapefruit League games sometime in the next week. Uribe will open 2016 as Cleveland's starting third baseman.
Mar 5 - 10:40 PM

Indians signed 3B Juan Uribe to a one-year, $4 million contract.

The deal was reported over a week ago, but the official announcement was delayed while Uribe resolved visa issues. He'll have a chance to earn an additional $1.5 million in incentives. The veteran third baseman will take over at the hot corner for the Tribe, likely pushing Giovanny Urshela back to Triple-A. Uribe, who turns 37 next month, batted .253/.320/.417 with 14 home runs last season between the Dodgers, Braves and Mets.
