According to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Juan Uribe trade talks are rumored to be heating up. Kenny Williams may be trying to finish a deal before Paul Konerko returns from the disabled list. Manager Ozzie Guillen talked about finding "the best opportunity" for Uribe, so it’s no secret the Sox are trying to make a trade.
Uribe, 29, is hitting .215/.269/.341 in 147 plate appearances as a utility infielder this year. He’s making $4.5MM, so that’ll be an issue.
The Orioles seem the most likely suitor, unless they complete a deal for Felipe Lopez. The Chicago Tribune’s Mark Gonzales says the Orioles had a scout in attendance for yesterday’s White Sox-Indians game (Uribe did not play).
