Rays Interested In Juan Uribe

The Rays have interest in free agent Juan Uribe, sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter).  The veteran would play mostly at first, some at second base, and also back up Evan Longoria at third base.

With limited available third base options out there, Uribe has a good amount of interest from around baseball.  The Rays will have to vie with the other Florida team, amongst others, for his services.  Uribe hit .273/.331/.438 for the Dodgers last season, a dramatic improvement over the .199/.262/.289 line he gave L.A. in the previous two campaigns.

The Dodgers have interest in bringing Uribe back, but they're reportedly set to move on since they haven't heard back on their latest offer.
