Insight: Uribe is capable of putting up 20-25 homers if he gets 500 at-bats, but that hasn't happened since 2010. He batted .278 with 12 HR and 50 RBI in 388 at-bats last season.
8/17/2013 10:27:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles third baseman Juan Uribe put the game out of reach with a three-run homer in the ninth inning Saturday against the Phillies.
Insight: All he needed was a triple for the cycle. Uribe is having a great series so far. In seven at bats, he's crushed five hits including three for extra bases.

Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is hitless in 11 tries versus Arizona starter Ian Kennedy.
Insight: Uribe is playing well, batting .320 (8-for-25) with 12 RBI over his last six games, but this is a matchup to avoid.
6/17/2013 9:26:00 AM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe missed Sunday's game against Pittsburgh due to tightness in his back and may need a day or two before he can start.
Insight: Uribe is playing well in a backup role this season batting .274 with an .778 OPS, but has limited upside.
6/4/2013 10:32:00 AM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is a career .393 hitter (11-for-28) with three home runs against Padres starter Clayton Richard.
Insight: Uribe is playing well in a backup role this season batting .283 with an .787 OPS, but could get the start at third base over Luis Cruz (1-for-7 versus Richard) on Tuesday because of the more favorable matchup.
6/1/2013 10:20:00 AM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe had a good game on Friday night, but don't expect to see him in the lineup against Jhoulys Chacin as he's hitless in 15 at-bats with six strikeouts.
Insight: Uribe is playing well in a backup role this season batting .287 with an .808 OPS, but this matchup should be avoided.
4/9/2013 4:13:00 PM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe will start and bat fifth Tuesday against the Padres.
Insight: Uribe is 10-for-26 with two homers in his career against Tuesday's starter Clayton Richard, so he'll get a start over Luis Cruz. Uribe is 86-for-438 (.196) with six home runs and a .546 OPS since 2011.
7/27/2012 9:38:00 PM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is receiving the night off Friday against the Giants.
Insight: Uribe (.196, 2 HRs, 17 RBIs) should still see regular playing time until shortstop Dee Gordon (.229, 1 HRs, 17 RBIs, 30 SBs) returns from the DL but when that happens he'll likely be reduced to a reserve role with newcomer Hanley Ramirez (.251, 14 HRs, 49 RBIs) getting most of the reps at third base.
7/23/2012 6:42:00 PM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is not in the lineup Monday against Houston.
Insight: Uribe (.190, 2 HRs, 17 RBIs) homered in Los Angeles' 8-5 win over New York on Saturday but he is still just 3-for-22 (.136) over his last 10 games.
7/21/2012 5:03:00 PM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe must have thought it was 2010 Saturday against the Mets, as he homered and drove in four runs.
Insight: Uribe belted 24 homers and had 85 RBIs with San Francisco in 2010 and then signed a free agent contract with Los Angeles. In 128 games with the Dodgers over the last two years, Uribe is batting .201 with six home runs and 45 RBIs. One big day isn't going to erase 120-plus games of failure.
7/3/2012 9:51:00 PM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe will miss Tuesday night's game against the Reds. He's out with a swollen ankle.
Insight: Uribe is hitless in his last 23 at bats. His batting average has dropped from .240 to an even .200 in that span. Fantasy owners should stay far, far away from Uribe, especially now that he has a bum ankle.
6/30/2012 9:55:00 AM
Description: Under no circumstances should you start Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe on Saturday. He's just a .145 batter versus Mets starter Johan Santana with 20 strikeouts in 62 career at-bats and he's hitless in his last six games.
Insight: Uribe is not the same guy who hit 24 HR and knocked in 85 in 2010 and should not even be on any fantasy rosters, much less in any fantasy starting lineups.
6/28/2012 9:17:00 PM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe will get the evening off Thursday against the Mets.
Insight: Uribe is hitless in his last 16 at bats and just two for his last 27 at the plate. With just one homer and 12 RBIs in 38 games this season, Uribe just isn't a reasonable fantasy option anymore.
6/25/2012 10:40:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is 2-for-21 (.095) in his career against Giants lefty Barry Zito.
Insight: Over the past two seasons, Uribe has shown little of the power that made him a valuable fantasy property in 2010 (24 HR, 85 RBI). He should not be in any starting lineups.
6/23/2012 10:06:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles third baseman Juan Uribe is 0-for-10 in his career against Angels starter Ervin Santana.
Insight: Over the past two seasons, Uribe (.231, 1 HR, 12 RBI) has shown little of the power that made him a valuable fantasy property in 2010 (24 HR, 85 RBI). He should not be in any starting lineups.
6/11/2012 7:43:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles third baseman Juan Uribe Uribe has been activated from the 15-day DL. Uribe was placed on the DL with a sore left wrist back on May 14th.
Insight: Uribe (.250, 1 HR, 10 RBIs) returns to the hot corner after spending a little under a month on the disabled list. Now that Uribe is back, outfielder Alex Castellanos will head back to Triple-A. Castellanos was .143 with two RBIs in 11 games for the Dodgers.
5/7/2012 7:09:00 PM
Description: Juan Uribe, who hasn't started since April 30th because of a sore wrist, will return to the Dodgers' starting lineup Monday night when they host the Giants.

5/1/2012 8:33:00 PM
Description: Juan Uribe is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday.
Insight: Uribe has never gotten a hit against Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin (0-15). Adam Kennedy (.059, 0 HR, 1 RBIs) will start at third base and bat seventh for Los Angeles.
5/1/2012 12:28:00 PM
Description: Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is hitless in 15 at-bats against Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin.
Insight: Uribe, still seeking his first home run, has not been very productive this season and should not be in any fantasy lineups at this point in time. He is certainly capable of hitting 20 homers in a season if he gets it going.
4/20/2012 8:37:00 PM
Description: Juan Uribe won't be in the starting lineup Friday or Saturday but he will be available off the bench. Uribe has been dealing with a wrist injury since Tuesday.
Insight: Uribe could be back on Sunday but until then, Jerry Hairston Jr. (.286) will continue to start at third for the Dodgers.
