Juan Uribe Activated From Disabled List, Dodgers Option Alex Castellanos

After missing 27 games with a left wrist injury, Juan Uribe was activated from the disabled list on Monday by the Los Angeles Dodgers before their game with the Los Angeles Angels. To make room for Uribe, the Dodgers optioned Alex Castellanos back to Triple A.

Uribe is hitting .250/.302/.338 with one home run and 10 RBI in 25 games this season for the Dodgers. Since signing a three-year, $21 million contract before the 2011 season, Uribe has hit just .214/.273/.303 with five home runs in 102 games.

Manager Don Mattingly said last week that Uribe would regain his starting role upon his return, which will push 27-year old rookie Elian Herrera into more of a utility role. Herrera, hitting .295/.386/.364 in 25 games this season, has started games at third base, second base, and center field this season.

Uribe played in three games over the weekend with Class A Rancho Cucamonga on a rehab assignment, going 3-for-10 with a home run and a triple.

Castellanos had three hits in 21 at-bats, including a triple, with seven strikeouts and no walks in 11 games in his first big league stint.
