Punto should be movable, as he’s owed $1.5 million for 2013 and still a solid utility infielder with a good glove. Uribe, on the other hand, has been one of the very worst all-around players in baseball for the past two seasons and is set to make $8 million. Good luck finding a taker for deal.
Rosenthal speculates that the Dodgers might have to simply release Uribe because no team would want him on the roster even if they agreed to cover the entire remaining salary, which … well, it shows just how awful the signing was by general manager Ned Colletti. Two years into a three-year, $21 million deal Uribe has hit .199 with a .552 OPS in 143 games.
