Juan Uribe (3B, LAD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Nedimyer - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add In Most Leagues

ANALYSIS: Uribe has somewhat cooled since his hot start to the year, but that shouldn't deter you from adding him off the wavier wire as your second option at third base, or starting him at the UTIL position.  Uribe is one of those sleepers that people are hesitant to pickup, yet he leads all third basemen with a .325 AVG and has also slugged 4 HR and driven in 16 RBI.  At the very least, Uribe can be valuable trade bait if you need help in other areas.  He'll be most valuable on your roster as a spot starter in the lineup when the Dodgers face a right handed pitcher.  With a .358 AVG, 4 HR and 12 RBI against righties, he's a great offensive option off your bench.  Points league owners beware: Uribe doesn't walk a lot and he's still displaying a lack of patience at the plate so he's primed to still strike out a ton.
