Tigers' Justin Upton: Homers twice against Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton hit a pair of home runs -- including a walk-off solo blast in the 12th inning -- in a 2-for-5 game with two runs scored and three RBI in Monday's win over the Mariners.

Has Upton figured it out? He now has four home runs in his past four games, part of a 10-game hitting streak. Over that span, Upton has raised his OPS from .613 to .684. His season to date has still been underwhelming, but Upton is finding the kind of hot streak that can make owners believe the Upton from the last three years -- .262/.344/.470 with an average of 27 homers per season -- will be the one who shows up for the rest of 2016.

Tigers' Justin Upton: Starting to turn season around
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton has raised his batting average from .214 to .234 in the last two weeks and doubled his home run total to six.

His overall numbers remain unremarkable, but here's what you need to know. Upton, who had been whiffing at a stunning 35.7 percent, has cut his strikeout rate to 24.2 since June 4. Couple that with an increase in walks and harder contact, and you have an outfielder who should be on your trade radar. But do it fast to get him at a reduced rate. Another week or so of line drives and continued discipline at the plate will wake up Upton's frustrated owner.

Tigers' Justin Upton: Hits homer, extends hitting streak to eight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 2-for-3 with a home run, walk and three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

Entering the game, Upton was 8-for-20 (.400) lifetime off Royals starter Edison Volquez, but his seventh-inning homer was Upton's first off the right-hander. The outfielder extended his hitting streak to eight games while hitting his second homer in as many nights. He's crept his average back up to .235, which is its highest point since May 8.

Tigers' Justin Upton: Finally starting to produce at the dish
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton was one of the few bright spots in Detroit's lineup Saturday in a 16-5 loss to Kansas City, going 2-for-3 with one home run and three RBI.

Don't look now, but he has a home run in back-to-back games -- that's the first time that's happened this season. Upton has now hit safely in eight straight games and is 10-for-32 (.313) with 11 RBI in the last week. He's still whiffing at an alarming rate -- he has 11 strikeouts in those 32 at-bats and is swinging and missing 36 percent of the time. Upton is showing signs of life at the dish, so now might be a buy-low time. He's too good to continue to scuffle.

Tigers' Justin Upton: Drives in four in win over White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton knocked in four runs and scored twice in a 2-for-4 night with a walk in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Upton has four multi-hit games in his past nine games, and his double and triple Tuesday night gave him five extra-base hits in that span. He's hitting a cool .277/.358/.447 in June, a refreshing start to the month after he finished May with a brutal .217/.264/.326 line. His 5:10 BB:K in 11 games is a strong sign he can sustain this improvement going forward.
