LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers dealt third baseman Juan Uribe to the Atlanta Braves in a six-player trade Wednesday.

The Dodgers also sent right-handed pitcher Chris Withrow to the Braves for infielder Alberto Callaspo, left-handers Eric Stults and Ian Thomas, and minor league right-hander Juan Jaime.

The 36-year-old Uribe was batting .247 with one home run and six RBI in 29 games. He posted a career-best .311 average last season, along with nine homers and 54 RBIs in 103 games.

Callaspo originally nixed the trade under a provision that prevents any player who became a major league free agent from being traded without his approval until after June 15. Callaspo agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with the Braves after spending last season with Oakland.
