The third baseman doubled in the ninth inning Tuesday against the New York Mets but limped into second base, having re-injured his already tender right hamstring.
He initially hurt it May 9 in a game against the San Francisco Giants. He was held out of the lineup until Friday against the Miami Marlins.
Uribe has a .303 batting average with four home runs and 18 RBIs this season.

The Dodgers have called up infielder Erisbel Arruebarrena from Double-A Chattanooga to take Uribe's place.
The 24-year-old Arruebarrena will be making his Major League debut. In 25 games in Double-A, he hit .208 with four doubles and six RBIs.
LA got some positive news on the injury front.
The team activated pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu from the disabled list Wednesday feeling confident he's recovered from inflammation in his throwing shoulder.
The left-hander was placed on the DL after his April 27 start when he complained of shoulder tightness. The 27-year-old is 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA in seven starts.
Reliever Chris Withrow was optioned Triple-A Albuquerque. In 21 1/3 innings, the righty posted 28 strikeouts and held opponents to a .143 batting average.
