The latest Juan Uribe MLB and fantasy baseball news

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly plans on mixing and matching at third base, with 3B Juan Uribe starting at third base Thursday, April 25, after three games of INF Jerry Hairston Jr. playing the hot corner. 3B Nick Punto has also started there twice with 3B Luis Cruz hitting .087. "It's hard to say it belongs to anybody," Mattingly said of third base. "I'll keep trying to match up numbers the best I can. The bright side is they all catch the ball. For me, it's mix and match." Cruz is "working on stuff" in the batting cages to try to shake his slump.
Fantasy Tip: This has now become a situation to avoid in fantasy leagues, perhaps even NL-only leagues, at least for now. Cruz will probably be given a shot to reclaim the job outright, but he'll have to make the most of the opportunities when he gets them. Look elsewhere for the time being.

The Los Angeles Dodgers plan to use 3B Luis Cruz at shortstop while SS Hanley Ramirez (thumb) is out of the lineup. 3B Juan Uribe would play at third base during that time.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz was already scheduled to be in the team's starting lineup as the third baseman, so his value will not change much. Uribe could become an option in National League-only leagues if he does get most of the time at third base with Ramirez out.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Justin Sellers will be considered to fill in for SS Hanley Ramirez (thumb), even though Sellers was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque Tuesday, March 19. SS Dee Gordon (ankle) is dealing with a mild left ankle sprain. Sellers is considered a better pure defender than Gordon, but he was hitting only .150 this spring. INFs Luis Cruz, Nick Punto, Juan Uribe and Jerry Hairston Jr. are all options, as well. SS Miguel Rojas is in minor league camp and has been compared defensively to former SS Omar Vizquel.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what direction the Dodgers will go at shortstop, but Cruz and Gordon make the most sense. The bottom line is none of these options have significant fantasy value, and Los Angeles will likely stick with whoever is playing the best.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the team would move 3B Luis Cruz to shortstop if SS Hanley Ramirez (thumb) is out for an extended amount of time. INFs Nick Punto, Juan Uribe and Jerry Hairston Jr. would all be considered at third base in that situation.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz was already slated to start at third base, so this won't change much other than making him eligible at shortstop. Punto, Uribe and Hairston could all cannibalize playing time from each other in some fashion.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have depth at the middle-infield positions and could deal INF Juan Uribe or INF Nick Punto.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the team still views SS Hanley Ramirez as their opening day shortstop. Ramirez is planning to represent the Dominican Republic in next spring's World Baseball Classic, and Mattingly said the team won't keep him from doing that, as long as he plays shortstop. However, it's unlikely that Ramirez will play shortstop since Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes will also be playing for the Dominican. 3B Luis Cruz will enter spring training with a chance to become the starting third baseman. INFs Jerry Hairston Jr., Nick Punto and Juan Uribe will also be in the picture at the hot corner.

The Los Angeles Dodgers may decide to part ways with 3B Juan Uribe once INF Adam Kennedy (groin) is ready to come off the 15-day disabled list. Uribe has not seen much playing time since 3B Hanley Ramirez has joined the team and is hitting .193 this season.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly gave SS Luis Cruz and C A.J. Ellis the day off Sunday, July 15, against the San Diego Padres. INF Juan Uribe and C Matt Treanor made starts in their absence.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said SS Luis Cruz, SS Jerry Hairston Jr., INF Elian Herrera and 3B Juan Uribe could all see time at shortstop while SS Dee Gordon (thumb) is out of the lineup.
