LOS ANGELES -- The on-again, off-again trade between the Dodgers and Braves is apparently back on again, with Juan Uribe headed to Atlanta and Alberto Callaspo to Los Angeles, plus a group of yet-unknown pitchers involved, too.

The soon-to-be Dodger Callaspo was scratched from the Braves lineup for a second straight night, with a rare tweet of candor from an official team account.

Callaspo, as a major league free agent who signed last offseason, had and exercised his right to refuse an trade before June 15, but that was Tuesday morning. By Tuesday evening, he reportedly changed his mind, and the deal is nearly complete, per reports.

I would imagine any kind of official announcement wouldn't happen until after the game.

"Whatever is going to happen is going to happen. If I play with another team, I play with another team. I can't control what else happens," Uribe said before Tuesday's game. "You have to take things as they come. That's what it comes down to."
