Juan Uribe: Released by Indians on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe was released by the Indians on Friday.

After being designated for assignment by the Indians on Monday, Uribe was officially released 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.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Designated for assignment Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe was designated for assignment by the Indians on Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Uribe was designated for assignment in order to make room for Andrew Miller on the 25-man roster and Brandon Guyer on the 40-man roster. The veteran was having a poor season offensively, hitting just .206/.259/.332 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 73 games. It remains to be seen whether he gets significant time with any other MLB club this season.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Out of lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

It's the third time in four games Uribe will find himself on the bench, with manager Terry Francona choosing to deploy utility man Jose Ramirez at third base more regularly of late. Ramirez figures to see even more usage in the infield once Michael Brantley (shoulder) rejoins the outfield ranks later this season, so it doesn't appear likely that Uribe will have many opportunities to deliver fantasy value over the final two months.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Held out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Out of lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 in at the hot corner, 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.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Returns to lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe (finger) is back in the lineup Monday against the Tigers.

Uribe was initially expected to return to action Sunday following his removal from Saturday's contest, but a late scratched delayed his return until Monday. He'll bat eighth in the order for the evening contest, confirming that any damage done after getting hit by a pitch Saturday is minor.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Scratched from lineup with finger discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Blue Jays due to discomfort in his right index finger.

The Indians initially gave Uribe the go-ahead to play Sunday after he was forced to exit Saturday's game upon being struck on the hand by a pitch, but he apparently was still experiencing some pain during pre-game activities. While the X-rays on Uribe's finger came back negative, he'll still require a day or two to heal up. Uribe's absence from Sunday's game will allow Jose Ramirez to pick up a start at third base.

Indians' Juan Uribe: In Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe (hand) will start at third base and bat eighth in the order Sunday against the Blue Jays, Andre Knott of WTAM 1100 reports.

Uribe was removed from Saturday's loss in the sixth inning after he was struck on the hand by a pitch with the bases loaded, resulting in Francisco Lindor coming off the bench to take his spot. Fortunately for the veteran, X-rays on his hand came back negative, and his presence in the lineup Sunday suggests Uribe was only removed the day before as a precaution. He should be in line for a full slate of at-bats in the series finale.

Indians' Juan Uribe: X-rays on hand returned negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

X-rays on Uribe's hand were negative after he was hit by a pitch during Saturday's game, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The bases were loaded when Uribe was hit by a pitch in the sixth inning, so he was credited with an RBI, but it looked like the RBI may have come at a significant cost. Fortunately, the X-ray results indicated that Uribe was able to avoid a serious injury, although he may have lost a fingernail. He may be available for Sunday's series finale, but don't be surprised if the Indians give him a day off.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Exits game in sixth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe exited Saturday's game in the sixth inning with an apparent injury, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Uribe didn't return to the field after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning, and it's likely an injury was the cause. Details concerning the severity of the ailment are forthcoming. Jose Ramirez moved to third base in Uribe's place while Francisco Lindor entered the game at shortstop.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe is out of Friday's lineup against the Blue Jays, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

He has been in the lineup roughly every other day of late, with Jose Ramirez getting a good chunk of the playing time at the hot corner. The switch-hitting Ramirez will hit fifth against righty Marcus Stroman.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

He had an improbable run of four homers in six games last week, but has just two hits in his last 15 at-bats. The Indians will opt to go with Jose Ramirez at the hot corner Wednesday.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Hits fifth homer Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Monday's 7-4 win over the Rays.

Uribe's eighth-inning blast gave the Indians a pair of insurance runs after Francisco Lindor's solo shot earlier in the frame put them ahead. The free-swinging infielder now has five long balls this season after managing 14 a year ago.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Homers in second straight game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Maybe he needs to injury his groin more often. After missing four games with a mild strain, Uribe's returned to go 5-for-9 with two homers, four RBI and four runs scored in the last two games.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Homers in return to lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After missing four games with a groin injury, Uribe went 3-for-5 with a home run, three runs and three RBI against the White Sox on Saturday.

Uribe, who hit his third home run of the year Saturday, was one of three Indians to post three hits. Before his injury, he was in a major funk, as he came into this contest with only two hits in his last 28 at-bats, so hopefully the productive game gets him back on track.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Back in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe (groin) is back in the lineup Saturday against the White Sox, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Uribe had missed the previous four games while dealing with a "testicular condition" after taking a foul ball to the groin area. The Indians intimated earlier in the week that the veteran could be headed for a DL stint, but it appears he's since made significant progress, and an extended absence now appears unlikely. Uribe's condition will still be something to keep an eye on over the next handful of days, though at this point the level of concern is considerably lower than it was two or three days ago.

Indians' Juan Uribe: Takes grounders Wednesday but still may face DL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe (groin) took grounders prior to Wednesday's game but could be headed to the DL if he doesn't improve soon, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Uribe's missed three straight games after exiting Sunday's game but it's an encouraging sign that he was able to take some grounders Wednesday. Whether or not he's able to avoid a DL stint remains to be seen but expect the Indians to decide prior to their weekend series

Indians' Juan Uribe: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Uribe (groin) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Royals, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

It's the third straight game Uribe will miss, as he was forced out of Sunday's contest with a testicular contusion after taking a hard-hit foul ball to the groin area. It's unclear how quickly he'll be able to return to the lineup, but in the meantime, Michael Martinez will draw the start at third base Wednesday and bat ninth against Ian Kennedy.
