Juan Uribe exits with right hamstring tightness

A strain of the same hamstring caused Uribe to miss 34 games earlier in the season.

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe left Friday night's game after just six innings with tightness in his right hamstring, the same hamstring that sidelined Uribe for over a month earlier this season.

Uribe is listed as day-to-day, and the team will run tests on Saturday and seeing how Uribe feels the day after, but manager Don Mattingly didn't sound too optimistic after the game.

"We'll know more tomorrow," Mattingly said. "It concerns us a little bit, just because it's the same leg."

Uribe felt something during his at-bat in the sixth inning on Friday, when he flew out to center field against Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson. Uribe exited the game in favor of Justin Turner, who played the final two innings at third base.

The team is concerned because Uribe strained the same hamstring in May and missed 34 games.

Uribe was 1-for-3 with a single on Friday and is hitting .293/.320/.411 this season with 18 doubles, six home runs and 35 RBI in 81 games. Despite playing roughly two-thirds of the season, he ranks near the top of most advanced defensive categories at third base.
