Giants' Melvin Upton Jr.: Undergoes surgery on thumb ligament
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton had surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament and will miss at least eight weeks, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports

Upton won't be able to go on a rehab assignment until late June in the absolute best case, so chances are he won't be available for the Giants until after the All-Star break. He hit 20 home runs between the Blue Jays and Padres last season and was looking like an intriguing outfield option before this injury took him out. Now the 31-year-old will have a long road back to the majors.

Giants' Melvin Upton Jr.: Injures thumb Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton injured his thumb when he was hit by a pitch Wednesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Upton, who signed a minor-league deal with the Giants on April 8, has been stationed with Triple-A Sacramento as he looks to play his way back into the majors. Until more concrete details become available regarding his thumb's condition, the veteran outfielder will be labeled as day-to-day.

Giants' Melvin Upton Jr.: Headed to Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton is set to sign a minor league contract with the Giants on Saturday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Upton was released by the Blue Jays right before the season started after struggling throughout spring. Upon signing with the Giants, he'll likely report to Triple-A Sacramento, where he will try to work his way back to the majors. Upton could eventually earn himself an opportunity to platoon with Jarrett Parker in left field, as Parker and his platoon mate Chris Marrero are a combined 0-for-20 with 10 strikeouts to start the year.

Melvin Upton Jr.: Released Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton was released by the Blue Jays on Sunday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reports.

After a rough spring in which he hit .194 (7-for-36), Upton was informed that he wasn't going to make the team's Opening Day roster. It appears that the Blue Jays attempted to trade the 32-year-old, but have ultimately elected to release him after a trade wasn't able to be completed. The veteran outfield should link up with another major-league team shortly.

Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: Unlikely to make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton isn't expected to be on Toronto's Opening Day roster, Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports.

Upton has been dealing with a shoulder injury throughout the spring, but it appears that his upcoming demotion is performance related. Through 13 games this spring, he's gone just 6-for-34 (.176) and has struck out 10 times over 35 plate appearances. Although specific details are currently unavailable, Olney also reported that the Blue Jays are exploring other options that would essentially eliminate their need for the 32-year-old outfielder, likely by trading him away.
