Justin Upton leaves game with hamstring cramp
Justin Upton was removed from the Braves game Sunday, but it was only for a hamstring cramp, so it doesn't sound serious.
The exit of Justin Upton from the Braves' Sunday game against the Marlins might have concerned Braves fans, but it doesn't sound serious. According to the team, Upton left with a cramp in his left hamstring. That shouldn't be the type of thing that lingers, so consider it a day to day thing for now.
Upton, 25, is hitting .267/.356/.482 with 22 homers, 61 RBI and 74 runs on the season. Heading into Sunday, he was hitting .395/.452/.921 with six homers and 13 RBI in nine games in August.
Again, though, a cramp should be an isolated injury and this shouldn't linger.
