After two dismal seasons with the Dodgers, Uribe batted .278 with 12 home runs and 50 RBIs while playing outstanding defense this past season.
Uribe, 34, is a .253 lifetime hitter in 13 major-league seasons.
Retaining Uribe allows the Dodgers to leave slugger Hanley Ramirez at shortstop, a position he prefers.
Going into last week's winter meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said his top priorities were finding his third baseman and acquiring relievers.

Just because the Tigers need a shortstop doesn't mean they'll sign Stephen Drew.
