Juan Uribe is sitting out this afternoon’s game with a wrist injury and Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that he’s scheduled to be examined by a specialist when the Dodgers arrive in Houston tomorrow.

According to Gurnick the Dodgers are “concerned the injury could be something serious.”

Don Mattingly noted that the team’s training staff informed him that Uribe “can play defense but not bat,” which is a pretty accurate description of his abilities at this point regardless of the injury.

Jerry Hairston Jr. got the start at third base today and replacing Uribe won’t be all that difficult considering he’s hit just .207 with a ghastly .267 on-base percentage and .289 slugging percentage in 87 games since signing with the Dodgers last offseason. He’s making $8 million this season and is owed another $8 million next year.

    $21 million over 3 years. What a total and complete bust. Coletti got robbed again.

    The sack of crap known as Juan Uribe should be the nail in Needle Head Ned’s coffin. I really wish the Dodgers would just DFA him and cut their losses. I’d rather see a kid in there.
