Uribe originally suffered the injury when he dove for a ground ball on September 20. The veteran infielder returned to action three days later, but he aggravated the injury during a pinch-hit appearance on September 25. He hasn’t played in a game since.
Uribe tested himself with some limited baseball activity in recent days, but he apparently hasn’t shown enough progress to be activated as a bench player. Kirk Nieuwenhuis took his spot on the roster for the first two rounds of the playoffs.
