Juan Uribe to see specialist for wrist injury

4 Comments

Juan Uribe is sitting out this afternoon’s game with a wrist injury and Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that he’s scheduled to be examined by a specialist when the Dodgers arrive in Houston tomorrow.

According to Gurnick the Dodgers are “concerned the injury could be something serious.”

Don Mattingly noted that the team’s training staff informed him that Uribe “can play defense but not bat,” which is a pretty accurate description of his abilities at this point regardless of the injury.

Jerry Hairston Jr. got the start at third base today and replacing Uribe won’t be all that difficult considering he’s hit just .207 with a ghastly .267 on-base percentage and .289 slugging percentage in 87 games since signing with the Dodgers last offseason. He’s making $8 million this season and is owed another $8 million next year.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
