LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers signed infielder Juan Uribe on Tuesday, reportedly to a three-year deal worth $21 million.

The length and value of the contract were both reported by the Los Angeles Times.

The former Giant brings a wealth of experience to Los Angeles after winning his second World Series title last season and can play several positions in the infield. In 148 games last season for San Francisco, Uribe batted .248 with a career-high 24 homers and 85 RBI to help the team win its first championship since 1954.

Uribe also won a World Series in 2005 with the Chicago White Sox, where he spent half his 10-season career. In 1,256 games with the White Sox, Giants and Rockies, the 31-year-old is a .256 hitter with 151 homers and 599 RBI.
