Juan Uribe


The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Uribe will be out of the Chicago White Sox's lineup at least until Thursday. He has missed four games already, and the team is considering moving him to the disabled list.


Uribe missed his second straight game on Monday with a stiff lower back. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said if the problem persists, he may be put on the disabled list, but he expects Uribe to be ready on Tuesday when the team opens a series against the New York Yankees.


Uribe went 3-for-4 with a homer and five RBIs in the White Sox's 6-2 win over the Cubs on Friday.


Uribe now has missed six straight games after sitting out the weekend series against the Cubs to rest an ailing lower back. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said Uribe could have been used Sunday, if needed, and the 25-year-old shortstop told reporters he will return to the lineup in Detroit this week.


Uribe missed all three games of the Chicago White Sox' sweep of the Kansas City Royals this week. The Sox' starting shortstop has been out with stiffness in his lower back, and Pablo Ozuna has subbed for him. Uribe is batting .242 with a .276 on-base percentage in 63 games this season.


Uribe was a late scratch from the White Sox' lineup on Tuesday, and he's not expected to start Wednesday's afternoon tilt against the Kansas City Royals, due to stiffness in his lower back. The injury is not considered serious, and the shortstop should be back in action this weekend. Pablo Ozuna will fill the void until Uribe can return.


After going 0-for-3 in the White Sox' win over the Angels on Tuesday, Uribe hasn't had a hit in 19 at-bats. Over his last 11 games, he's 3-for-38 (.079) and has scored just one run for the Sox. Uribe has a history as a free swinger, and that's been a problem during his skid.


After missing four games with a mild groin strain, Uribe returned to the Chicago White Sox' lineup Tuesday night and went 1-for-3. The 25-year-old shorstop now has nine hits in his last 21 at-bats (.429), and he is enjoying a three-game hitting streak. He has hit safely in five of his last six contests.

For the season, Uribe is batting .288 with five doubles and 12 RBI in 21 games.


Uribe strained a groin muscle trying to avoid a pitch in the batter's box during the White Sox' loss to Oakland on Tuesday. The Sox' shortstop sat out Wednesday's loss to the A's, and he's likely to miss a game or two this weekend, when Chicago hosts Detroit.

Joe Crede had to start at short on Wednesday, as both Uribe and Pablo Ozuna were hurt on Tuesday night. As the Sox' starting shortstop this season, Uribe is batting .286 with 12 RBI in 20 games.


Uribe didn't start for the White Sox on Monday, a 2-1 win over Cleveland, because of the flu. Whether he will be ready for Wednesday's Sox-Tribe contest in Cleveland is unknown.
