Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Chone Figgins appears to have a cloudy future with the club. Manager Don Mattingly was asked about the future of Figgins, and he would not get into specifics other than to say "I know we have a plan going forward. It's nothing I can share with you."

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed 3B Juan Uribe (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain Wednesday, May 21, and recalled INF Erisbel Arruebarrena from the minors in a corresponding move. Arruebarrena had only a .252 on-base percentage and a .302 slugging percentage at Double-A Chattanooga this year. INFs Justin Turner and Chone Figgins are expected to split time at third base in Uribe's absence.
Fantasy Tip: Arruebarrena will likely be mainly for defensive purposes late in games. He shouldn't be a target in fantasy leagues. Turner and Figgins will cancel each other out for the most part. Only look to one of them if you're desperate for an infielder in NL leagues.

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Juan Uribe (hamstring) could land on the disabled list after he aggravated his strained right hamstring Tuesday, May 21. Uribe said this time the injury is worse. His hamstring ailment kept him out for five games previously. If he needs to go on the DL, INFs Justin Turner and Chone Figgins will likely be used at third base in his absence. Turner is hitting .230 and Figgins just .211.
Fantasy Tip: Turner and Figgins would only be options for desperate NL-only managers, especially since they'll likely split playing time at the hot corner.

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Juan Uribe (hamstring) left the game early with a strained right hamstring Thursday, May 8, but the team is describing his injury as "mild." The team isn't putting him on the disabled list, but manager Don Mattingly said it's too early to tell how long Uribe will be out. Uribe has hit .306 with four home runs and 17 RBIs this season. INFs Justin Turner or Chone Figgins would be the replacements if Uribe misses extended time.
Fantasy Tip: Turner and Figgins could easily figure into a platoon situation at third if Uribe lands on the DL. They'd mainly be replacements in NL-only affairs.
