Dodgers, White Sox, Marlins pushing hard for Juan Uribe

9 Comments

The Juan Uribe market is sizzling, it seems. Enrique Rojas reports that the Dodgers and White Sox are “pushing hard” for him. Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins are interested as well.

And why not? Uribe is coming off a pretty darn good 2013, posting a .769 OPS in 426 plate appearances while playing an excellent third base. That’s not break-the-bank stuff, but he’s a solid alternative to, say, trading for Chase Headley. Third base talent is hard to come by these days.
