Juan Uribe said to be willing to discuss salaries at 2 different scales--one price to be a utility player,or a higher price to be a regular.

I'm not so sure the Dodgers trade Andre Ethier. Yes, they have outfield depth but Ethier was productive last year and is a much better bet for 2016 than Carl Crawford while providing a hedge against Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig. Scott Van Slyke and Trayce Thompson, meanwhile, are more right-handed platoon bats than everyday players. It's a logjam but the solution may be just to eat Crawford's money.

The Giants have had discussions with Juan Uribe about a utility role, but the salary ask has been too expensive for them.
