Uribe sits with a tight right hamstring

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe was scratched from Saturday night's starting lineup because of tightness in his right hamstring.

Alfredo Amezaga started in place of Uribe at third base.

Uribe is considered in the mix to share third base with Nick Punto and Jerry Hairston as long as Luis Cruz plays shortstop in place of the injured Hanley Ramirez.
