The Dodgers were able to compliment their roster in a six player trade by Dealing the aging Juan Uribe. Uribe's starting role has already been replaced on the Dodgers' roster. By making the trade, the Dodgers also added a switch hitting role player that can play multiple infield positions for the team when necessary.

Juan Uribe was in the perfect spot on the roster before they traded him. The Dodgers are going to suffer from the trade, as they lost two talented players and in turn lost the trade with Atlanta. If Withrow comes back from surgery and is worse for wear, the team is going to be in big trouble.
