The Dodgers love newest Brave Juan Uribe. And Uribe loves the Dodgers.

Uribe, who was part of a six-player trade between Atlanta and Los Angeles that sent Uribe and right-handed pitcher Chris Withrow to the Braves in exchange for infielder Alberto Callaspo, left-handed pitchers Eric Stults and Ian Thomas and minor-league right-handed pitcher Juan Jaime.

In the video above, Uribe expresses his gratitude for four-plus years with the Dodgers organization.

The Dodgers in turn say Uribe holds “a special place in Dodgers history for always being a fan favorite.”

So much so the team will proceed with Juan Uribe night in July.
