      Tigers' Justin Upton: Agrees to six-year contract with Tigers

      The Tigers and Upton agreed to a six-year contract Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The deal is subject to Upton passing a physical, but assuming that comes to fruition, the market has lost one of its most talented free agents. Ringing in at 28 years old, the outfielder already has five 25-plus homer campaigns under his belt, while also swiping his fair share of bases, including 115 over the past seven years. In addition to stat-laden lines, he's logged at least 149 games played in five consecutive seasons, meaning he'll regularly man left field in his home confines of Comerica Park.

      Justin Upton: Declines qualifying offer from Padres

      Upton declined his qualifying offer from the Padres, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. This was expected, as Upton is one of the most coveted hitters on the free agent market after hitting 26 home runs and driving in 81 runs. He'll look for a longer-term, higher-paying deal in free agency.

      Justin Upton: Extended qualifying offer

      Upton (neck) was given a qualifying offer by the Padres on Friday, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports. The move comes as little surprise from the Padres perspective, but Upton is unlikely to sign the offer as he'll command more years and money on the open market. The 28-year-old took a bit of a step back in his only season in San Diego, hitting just .251 -- his worst average since 2008 -- but he also added 26 homers and 81 RBI and should be one of the most coveted hitters in free agency.

      Padres OF Justin Upton will miss remainder of the season

      Padres outfielder Justin Upton (neck strain) will miss the rest of the regular season, MLB.com's Corey Brock reports. He still hasn't been cleared to swing a bat, and with the Padres well out of the playoff race and Upton about to hit free agency, it makes no sense for him to try to get back for one of the Padres' final three games. Upton will be one of the most sought after hitters on the market this winter.

      Padres OF Justin Upton not in lineup Wednesday due to illness

      Padres outfielder Justin Upton is out of the lineup due to an illness, but could be available as a pinch-hitter Wednesday, Dennis Lin of the Union-Tribune reports. Upton's absence from Wednesday's lineup had been a mystery given that he was coming off a big game Tuesday, but it has been revealed that he's dealing with an illness. With the possibility of pinch-hitting Wednesday, this condition doesn't sound serious enough to cost Upton more than one or two games.

      Padres outfielder Justin Upton not in Wednesday's lineup

      Padres outfielder Justin Upton is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. The team has not suggested Upton's dealing with any sort of injury, but something seems amiss as Upton had one of his best game of the second half Monday, going 3 for 4 with a double and a homer. Upton also just had a day off back on Sept. 10. Wil Myers is in left field for the Padres on Wednesday.
