Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times believes the White Sox plan to shake things up today by getting rid of one or two players. Most likely to go is infielder Juan Uribe. Uribe makes $4.5MM this year, so he’d become part of the growing list of players who were paid to go away. He was placed on waivers in March but no one wanted to pay his salary. South Side Sox isn’t jazzed with the idea of replacing him at second base with Alexei Ramirez.
Uribe, 29, has a career line of .252/.293/.424. His once-stellar defense has become a source of frustration. The Orioles are one team that might consider him, as they did last winter.
