Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: Will hit cleanup in first start with new team
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton will man left field and hit cleanup Wednesday in his first start as a Blue Jay, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

Upton made his Blue Jays debut Tuesday with a pinch-hit appearance, but he will receive his first start with his new squad Wednesday afternoon in place of Michael Saunders.

Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: To play against lefties, fill in role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager John Gibbons indicated Tuesday that Upton (who's not starting Tuesday) will start in right field against lefties and will occasionally give other outfielders days off, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

Gibbons mentioned that he's expected to be in the lineup Wednesday, but it sounds as though his playing time will be rather sparse after that. When southpaws take the hill, Upton will start the majority of games in right field while Jose Bautista will shift to designated hitter and Edwin Encarnacion will man first base. Upton should see occasional spot starts at the other two outfield spots as well. The veteran could also serve as a late-game pinch runner and defensive substitute, but his at-bats may be limited compared to his time in San Diego this season.

Blue Jays' Melvin Upton Jr.: Out of Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports.

It appears Upton will actually sit on the bench in his debut with the Blue Jays, as the club will go with their normal alignment of Michael Saunders in left, Kevin Pillar in center and Jose Bautista in right. It's unclear if travel will play a factor, but Upton could see time at all three outfield spots moving forward, with the regular lineup revealing itself over the next few days.

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

The Blue Jays agreed Tuesday to acquire Upton from the Padres in exchange for a Class A prospect, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

The two teams still have to finalize the terms of the trade, but Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Padres will pay a significant portion of the $22 million remaining on Upton's contract. It's expected that the deal will become official later Tuesday, and if that's the case, Upton could suit up immediately for the Blue Jays, as the Padres are already in Toronto for their first visit to the city in franchise history. After looking like one of the worst regular players in the majors over the last three seasons, Upton has rebounded in a big way in 2016, hitting .256 with 16 homers and 20 steals across 373 plate appearances for the Padres. He'll presumably slot into an everyday role with his new team, allowing Jose Bautista to see more time at DH. Upton's departure from the Padres would open up more at-bats in the outfield for Alex Dickerson, who has homered in back-to-back contests.

Padres' Melvin Upton Jr.: Out again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton is out of the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays.

He also sat Sunday, so it's worth wondering whether Upton is a little banged up. Upton has also been pretty cold at the plate, notching three hits in his last 27 at-bats; if he is ailing, that would explain his recent struggles. We'll update his status if any word of an injury surfaces. Alex Dickerson will start in left field and hit fifth Monday.
