    This is so weird. No one is supposed to take pictures or video in the clubhouse, yet here we have video of Juan Uribe at his locker. Seems odd. Oh, hello Hanley.

  6. Luis Valbuena could be the Cubs’ starting third baseman

    Dec 29, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    Third base has become an increasingly difficult position to fill properly. As an example, Juan Uribe has earned the biggest contract at the position this off-season, recieving $15 million over two years from the Dodgers. As a result, the Cubs may end up having to give their starting third base job to Luis Valbuena, Carrie…

    MLB: Yankees-Brian McCann Press Conference

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

  8. Juan Uribe returns to Dodgers with two-year deal worth around $15 million

    Fortunately for Dodgers fans, the idea of the team using Michael Young as their starting third baseman in 2014 was short-lived. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers and Juan Uribe have reached agreement on a two-year deal to keep him in Los Angeles. No word yet on the terms involved. Such a scenario…

  9. Marlins interested in Casey McGehee and Wilson Betemit to play third base

    The Marlins have been mentioned as a possible landing spot for free agent Juan Uribe in recent days, but Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald hears that the club continues to look at other options to play third base: Seeking a third baseman, the Marlins are intrigued by free agent Casey McGehee, 31, who played…

  10. Dodgers considering bringing back Michael Young as their regular third baseman

    Michael Young Getty

    The Dodgers are flush with cash, but it can’t buy them everything. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the team is considering bringing back free agent Michael Young as their starting third baseman. As Olney explains, the reason for this is because the Dodgers “believe increasingly” that free agent Juan Uribe could be headed elsewhere. Reports…

  11. The Rays are interested in Juan Uribe as a first baseman

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Four

    Add another team to the White Sox and Dodgers in the Juan Uribe derby: Sources: #Rays interested in free agent Juan Uribe.

  12. Dodgers, White Sox, Marlins pushing hard for Juan Uribe

    Dec 10, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Four

    The Juan Uribe market is sizzling, it seems. Enrique Rojas reports that the Dodgers and White Sox are “pushing hard” for him. Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins are interested as well. And why not? Uribe is coming off a pretty darn good 2013, posting a .769 OPS in 426 plate appearances while playing an excellent…

    Per Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles, Dodgers GM Ned Colletti says he has made multiple offers to Juan Uribe, but have yet to hear back. The 34-year-old free agent has spent a majority of his playing time at third base since joining the Dodgers in 2011. Uribe had a career year in 2013, finishing…

  14. Of course the Marlins are interested in Yuniesky Betancourt

    Nov 21, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Yuniesky Betancourt

    Yesterday I poked a little fun at the Marlins’ reported interest in “proven run-producer” Juan Uribe, so of course I have to post this from Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald: The Marlins have inquired about free agent third baseman Yuniesky Betancourt … Betancourt can play every infield position but the Marlins are considering him…

  15. Tigers win big in shedding Prince Fielder’s contract

    Nov 20, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Give lots of credit to Dave Dombrowski; the potential nightmare back half of Prince Fielder‘s nine-year, $214 million contract is no more. Instead, Fielder and the $168 million he’s still owed is gone after two mildly disappointing seasons in Detroit, with Ian Kinsler‘s more palatable deal coming back. The Tigers sent along $30 million in…

  16. Marlins interested in “proven run-producer” Juan Uribe

    Juan Uribe Getty

    At this point almost any story about the Marlins can be spun into laughs, but this one from Joe Frisaro of MLB.com legitimately made me chuckle: The team has already reached out to Juan Uribe to play either third base or first. A proven run producer, Uribe brings leadership to the table, and he is…

  17. Juan Uribe hopes to land a three-year contract

    Nov 18, 2013, 9:10 PM EDT

    f1de9f01e87f9a7a4cc0a55b4d7e2aa5

    Juan Uribe was a disaster over his first two years with the Dodgers, but he provided a surprising bounce-back this past season by hitting .278/.331/.438 with 12 home runs and 50 RBI while playing excellent defense at third base. The 34-year-old also had some key hits during the postseason, including a go-ahead homer during the…

    Manny Machado

    Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez. Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…

    After 199 post-season plate appearances, he is finally there. Carlos Beltran will play in the World Series for the first time. The 36-year-old had been to the National League Championship Series three times before and three times played in a Game 7, only to go home unsatisfied. Had the Cardinals not finished the job tonight…
