Upton went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Diamondbacks. Upton could have had an even bigger day at the plate if Jarrod Dyson didn't rob a potential grand slam in the seventh inning. Instead, his fantasy owners will have to settle for Monday's lone home run. Upton's numbers are a tick lower than last year's career-best marks, but the 30-year-old is still slashing .255/.341/.468 with 16 homers and 43 RBI, trailing only the great Mike Trout on the club in the latter two categories.
Upton (back) is back in the starting lineup Sunday against the Athletics. Upton was held out of Saturday's lineup due to back stiffness, but his absence won't last longer than a day, as he's back to his regular role in left field. He'll bat third in the order for the series finale.
Upton (back) hopes to be available for Sunday's series finale at Oakland, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Upton was scratched from Saturday's lineup with lower back stiffness after waking up with tightness in the morning. The 31-year-old may be optimistic about his chances to play Sunday, but it also wouldn't be surprising for Arizona to play it safe and give him an additional day of rest after starting the last 17 games.
Upton was removed from Saturday's lineup with lower-back stiffness. Upton was replaced by Chris Young. The severity of his injury is not yet known, but he'll end up missing at least one start.
Upton went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-3 win over Kansas City. Upton's seventh-inning homer turned out to be the deciding run in a narrow victory. The 30-year-old has snapped out of his late-May funk with nine hits and three long balls over his last four contests. He should remain a fixture in the heart of the Halos' potent lineup, providing fantasy owners with healthy totals in home runs (14), RBI (39) and runs (36).
