Uribe-Cora Trade Not Happening

8:48pm: Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe says the Red Sox backed away from a potential Uribe deal, opting to stick with Cora as Jed Lowrie‘s backup.

4:31pm: Ken Rosenthal has further details on Danny Knobler’s report of Boston’s trade talks for Juan Uribe.

Rosenthal says a Juan UribeAlex Cora swap between the Red and White Sox could happen, with the teams splitting the salary difference.  Then he lays this idea on us:

One scenario would be for the White Sox to use Cora at least part-time at second, move rookie Alexei Ramirez to short and trade shortstop Orlando Cabrera, possibly to the Dodgers for right-hander Derek Lowe.

Hard to say if this scenario has actually been discussed between Kenny Williams and Ned Colletti.  But Rosenthal says the Dodgers are aggressively shopping Lowe, which I didn’t see coming.
