Tigers' Justin Upton: Blasts 17th homer in Friday win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton went 2-for-4 with a double and two-run homer in Friday's 4-2 victory over the Angels.

He snapped a 1-1 tie in the sixth with a 419-foot shot to left that plated J.D. Martinez, his fourth homer in the last five games. Upton is still struggling at the plate average-wise in August, but is starting to make consistently hard contact, with three doubles and all four of the aforementioned round-trippers since Aug. 20.

Tigers' Justin Upton: Homers in fourth straight two-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton went 2-for-5 with his 16th homer -- a three-run shot -- against the Twins on Wednesday.

He hit a pair of three-run homers against Boston on Sunday and has put together four straight two-hit games, so Upton's bat has awakened suddenly on the heels of an ugly slump in which he batted only .155 with zero homers over 58 at-bats. This has been the toughest season of the veteran slugger's career, but Upton would go a long way toward salvaging it if he can sustain this hot streak for the final month-plus.

Tigers' Justin Upton: Slugs pair of three-run homers Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton went 2-for-4 with two three-run homers in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

He victimized rookie lefty Henry Owens in the third and fifth innings with the no-doubt blasts, giving Upton 15 homers on the season. The home runs were his first in August, though, and he's slashing a paltry .177/.227/.290 on the month, so he'll need more than just one big game to put himself back on the fantasy radar in most formats.

Tigers' Justin Upton: Out through Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Upton will be held out of the Tigers' lineup Thursday and Friday in an effort to "hit the reset button," according to manager Brad Ausmus, MLive's Evan Woodbery reports.

He was also held out Wednesday as well as part of a planned three-day absence that the Tigers hope will jumpstart their left fielder with the big name and bigger contract. Upton is 1-for-31 in his last eight games and has been one of the bigger fantasy busts this season. Alex Presley's contract was purchased from Triple-A and he is starting in left field Thursday.

Tigers' Justin Upton: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton is out of the lineup Wednesday against Kansas City.

With Upton headed to the bench, Andrew Romine will join an outfield of J.D. Martinez and Tyler Collins. Upton has had disastrous numbers as of late and is just 1-for-30 with eight strikeouts over the last seven games.
