Report: Giants re-sign Uribe
Jon Heyman of SI.com reports that the Giants have re-signed infielder Juan Uribe, pending a physical.
The deal is expected to be a one-year deal with a club option for 2011.
Uribe was one of the bright spots of the Giants offense last season not named Sandoval.
He had 16 HR, 55 RBI and hit .289 in 398 ABs last season.
He’ll likely fill the infield utility role next season and adds to the Giants flexibility. Uribe played equally at 2B, SS and 3B last season. With the addition of DeRosa, who can play all the infield positions, plus outfield, it gives manager Bruce Bochy a lot of options. Add to that is the fact the Pablo Sandoval can play 1B and 3B as well as catcher. And Eugenio Velez can play the middle infield as well as the outfield.
This flexibility leaves the Giants a lot of options if they’re looking to add another bat to the lineup.
