Uribe was released by the Indians on Friday. After being designated for assignment by the club Monday, Uribe was officially released by Cleveland on Friday. The veteran has had a rough time on the field this season, hitting just .206/.259/.332 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 73 games. He could get scooped up by another team for the stretch run in the next couple days, but at age 37, Uribe might've played his last game in the majors this season.
Uribe is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, according to Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal. Uribe started six of the last nine games at third base, but the veteran will get a day off Wednesday with the Indians and Nationals playing an early afternoon affair. Jose Ramirez will man the hot corner for the Indians on Wednesday.
Uribe is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins. For the second time this series, Uribe will give way to Jose Ramirez at third base. Due to his ability to play multiple positions, Ramirez hasn't directly taken away at-bats from Uribe for most of this season, but that could happen with more regularity once Michael Brantley (shoulder) returns from the DL to reclaim his everyday post in left field, perhaps as soon as later this week.
Uribe is out the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees. Uribe gets most of the playing time at third base against southpaws, but he's often rested against right-handers. Jose Ramirez will man the hot corner, with Lonnie Chisenhall and Rajai Davis taking the corner outfield spots.
Uribe is not in Thursday's lineup against the Yankees. Uribe has only started three of the past five games after dealing with a finger injury the past few days, and will be out of the lineup again Thursday. In his place, Cleveland will slot Jose Ramirez into the hot corner while batting fifth. Uribe is 0-for-9 during the three games he has played this month after only hitting .188 in the month of June.
