MLB rumors: Dodgers, White Sox make contract offers to Juan Uribe

How quickly times can change.

Just over a season ago, Los Angeles Dodgers fans (and likely their front office) were counting the days until the team would be rid of Juan Uribe and his irritating contract. But a vastly improved 2013 campaign (which just so happened to coincidence with a contract year) changed the tune and now it’s the Dodgers doing what they can to retain the third baseman.

They aren’t without competition though as the Chicago White Sox, a team where Uribe became a postseason hero in 2005 is also after his services and both teams have offered Uribe a deal, according to Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes.

The ESPN report says the Dodgers have offered Uribe a one-year deal with an option (does not define team or player – I’d assume player) on the second season. Meanwhile, the White Sox have offered Uribe a two-year deal though no terms have been reported as of this point.

Other teams have expressed interest in Uribe as well, like the Miami Marlins, but it appears to be a two-horse race between the Dodgers and White Sox at this current moment.
