Uribe contributed all of the offense for the Braves, hitting a ninth-inning home run.

Uribe now has two home runs in the last four days, bringing his total to five for the season. The third baseman has hit considerably better since coming to the Braves, and should continue to see consistent at bats in Atlanta moving forward.

Uribe is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.

Uribe will pick up a rest after starting the first two games of the series, going 3-for-7 with a solo home run. The 35-year-old Uribe lacks fantasy upside at this stage of his career due to his rather empty contributions in the counting stats categories, but his steady defense at third base should continue to afford him regular at-bats.

Uribe is out of the lineup again Thursday against the Nationals.

Uribe's absence likely relates to his 0-for-13 stretch at the plate over the last five contests. The Braves will once again give the start at third base to Kelly Johnson on Thursday, and he'll bat sixth against the Nationals and starter Doug Fister.

Uribe is out of the lineup Friday against the Mets.

Uribe will take a seven-game hitting streak with him to the bench, and will cede Friday's start at third base to Chris Johnson. However, he should continue to serve as the everyday third baseman moving forward.

Uribe is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.

Chris Johnson will take over at third base as Uribe sits after starting two straight and seven of the last eight. The 36-year-old Uribe is 13-for-52 (.250 average) with three doubles and two homers in 15 games with Atlanta, giving him a .248/.308/.353 combined slash line for the season.

Uribe is out of the lineup Wednesday.

Uribe seems to have a pretty firm hold on the bulk of the playing time at third base, and has six hits and five RBI in his last four games. On Wednesday, however, Chris Johnson will get the start at third and hit fifth.

Uribe homered for the second straight game on Sunday against the Giants, finishing 1-for-4 with a pair of RBI.

After showing little power and hitting just one home run in 41 appearances for the Dodgers this season, the veteran has hit two in his last two games and is batting .333 with two home runs, four RBI, four runs scored and even a stolen base in four starts for Atlanta. Uribe's playing time could fluctuate with Chris Johnson in the picture and he's unlikely to keep up the home run production, so he carries little fantasy value at the moment.

Uribe busted out with a 3-for-4 effort Saturday in San Francisco, notching a double, a homer, a walk, a steal, two RBI and two runs.

A massive game for Uribe, whose Braves career had been off to a slow 1-for-8 start. The homer and steal were both his second of the year, although we wouldn't bet on the 36-year-old swiping too many more bags. He should be good for a homer here and there, but with Chris Johnson back in the fold, Uribe's playing time may be inconsistent.
