After two forgettable seasons in Los Angeles, former Giants utility infielder Juan Uribe had an impressive 2013 campaign and is looking to capitalize. Now a free agent, Uribe is seeking a three-year contract, according to a CBS Sports report.

The report also indicates the Dodgers are interested in bringing him back to Los Angeles, though not necessary at the requested price tag.

Uribe, 34, hit .278 with 12 home runs and 50 RBI in 132 games for the Dodgers last season. His .983 fielding percentage at third base set a new franchise record, eclipsing Adrian Beltre's .978 mark set in 2004. And he proved his worth in the postseason, as his two-run home run in the eighth inning of Game 4 of the NLDS sent the Dodgers into the next round.

The 13-year veteran is a .253 career hitter with 169 home runs.

In two seasons with the Giants, Uribe hit .266 with 40 home runs and 140 RBI.
