Uribe batted .248/.310/.440 with 24 homers and 85 RBI during the regular season, and drove in nine runs in the postseason. He's a strong defender, especially considering he'll likely make a move from shortstop to second base, where his range is less problematic, in Los Angeles.
This probably means the Dodgers will non-tender Ryan Theriot, who was disappointing after being traded to the Dodgers along with Ted Lilly at the trade deadline. It also adds the Giants to the shortstop market, where they could go after Jason Bartlett or J.J. Hardy.
UPDATE: Various reports say the deal is worth $21 million for three years. If I'm a Dodgers fan, I'm not sure I like this signing.
