Already overloaded at third base and with more talent on the way, the Dodgers decided they no longer had use for Juan Uribe about a third of the way through last season and traded him, beginning what looks to be the nomad stage of his career. First he was a stopgap for the Braves, then an injury fill-in for the Mets, then a bench player for Mets and now ... who knows? He'll probably be a stopgap or a bench player for some other team, which means inconsistent at-bats and minimal Fantasy value even in league-specific formats. He's good for cheap power when he's playing, but that's about it.
Uribe (chest) is on the Mets' World Series roster, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports. This will be Uribe's first opportunity on the Mets' postseason roster as the veteran had been kept out of the previous two series due to a chest injury. Matt Reynolds, the de-facto backup shortstop after Ruben Tejada broke his leg during the NLDS, will lose his spot on the roster in place of Uribe. It's unlikely the 36-year-old, who is one of the only players on the roster to have any World Series experience, will get any starts against the Royals in the series, but he could be a valuable pinch-hitter if called upon.
Mets infielder Juan Uribe (chest), injured September 20 and out since September 25, took batting practice Saturday and will travel with the Mets to Kansas City, The Record reports. Uribe, one of the few Mets with World Series experience, reportedly looked great during batting practice. If he is on the team's 25-man roster, it likely will come at the expense of Kirk Nieuwenhuis.
Mets infielder Juan Uribe (chest) is not ready to play and will not be on the team's NLCS roster, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Uribe has not yet progressed to taking batting practice or any other baseball activities, so his exclusion from the roster does not come as much of a surprise. With just two pinch-hit appearances since Sept. 20 representing all of his playing time in that span, Uribe likely would not be on the World Series roster should the Mets advance that far.
Mets infielder Juan Uribe (chest) has not resumed baseball activities, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports. Uribe has made just two pinch-hit appearances since Sept. 20 and it seems apparent that his injury hasn't made much improvement. It seems likely he will be withheld from the roster if the Mets advance to the NLCS.
Mets infielder Juan Uribe (chest/ribs) has been ruled out of the NLDS, The Wall Street Journal reports. This designation seemed likely considering Uribe hasn't been able to play much since suffering a chest injury diving for a ball Sept. 20. He hasn't been ruled out for future rounds if the Mets advance, but it's unlikely the 36-year-old will be used as anything more than a pinch-hitter at this point in the season.
