Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: Gets second straight start in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton is starting in left field and batting seventh in the order Sunday against the Twins.

Upton has been splitting time in left field with Ezequiel Carrera lately, but he possesses more fantasy upside of the two and may have inched ahead of Carrera in the competition for at-bats. It's the second start in a row for Upton, who is sitting on a .311/.347/.600 line over his last 45 at-bats, including three homers, nine RBI, 12 runs and a stolen base.

Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: Has game-tying triple, scores winning run in Saturday victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton went 1-for-4 with a game-tying triple and two runs, including the game-winner as a result of a throwing error.

The slugging outfielder came through in the eighth with a one-out triple that brought home Kevin Pillar with the tying run, with Upton scoring behind him on the play due to Max Kepler inadvertently kicking the ball in right field. He's been swinging a hot bat over the last three games, going 6-for-13 with two doubles, Saturday's triple, an RBI and six runs over that span.

Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: Ready for heavy workload down stretch
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager John Gibbons said he expects Upton to "play a lot" down the stretch, despite the upcoming return of Jose Bautista, MLB.com reports.

Acquired from the Padres prior to the trade deadline, Upton has seen an increase in playing time with injuries to Bautista and Kevin Pillar. Pillar is back and Bautista is due to return this week, but the plan is to have the latter fill the DH role while Upton plays the outfield. Overall, Upton has hit just .200 with 29 strikeouts over his 24 games with the Blue Jays. However, the veteran has been improving lately, hitting .290 with three home runs and eight RBI in his last nine contests.

Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: Homers for third time in four games Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton went 1-for-4 with a solo shot in Sunday's game against the Indians.

Upton's third-inning homer off Indians starter Corey Kluber was his 19th of the season and third since moving north of the border July 26. The 32-year-old outfield started slow with the Jays, but Upton has been picking it up in recent days. All three of his home runs with the team have come over the last four games, a span in which he racked up six RBI and scored four runs. Upton continues to see regular playing time with Kevin Pillar and Jose Bautista on the mend.

Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: Drives in three in 7-4 victory over Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and two runs against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old has struggled during his brief time with Toronto, but he seems to be coming out of his slump. He has two hits in three of his last four games and finished this series 4-for-10 with his first homer as a member of the Blue Jays. In his 405 at-bats between San Diego and Toronto, Upton is hitting .249 with 17 homers, 50 RBI, 51 runs and 23 steals.
