    • Upton and the Angels agreed to a five-year contract Thursday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. Upton's new deal will net the outfielder $106 million over the next five years, after the Angels added $17.5 million and one year from his existing contract. This will keep Upton in Los Angeles through the 2022 season, which will make him 35 years old the following offseason. Over the course of this past year between Detroit and the Angels, Upton slashed .273/.361/.540 with career highs of 35 home runs and 109 RBI.

    • Angels' Justin Upton: Out of Thursday's lineup

      Upton is not in the starting nine for Thursday's game against the White Sox, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. With the Angels' elimination from the playoffs, manager Mike Scioscia elected to give a bunch of regulars the day off, so Upton will occupy a seat on the bench for the series finale. Ben Revere will draw the start in left field in his stead.

    • Upton went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo homers Saturday against the Astros. Upton smashed his 33rd and 34th homers to tally the only runs for the Angels in a road defeat. He's hit six home runs over his last 10 games, and he's been an outstanding fantasy option at the most important time of the season.

    • Angels' Justin Upton: Sets career high in homers
      By RotoWire Staff

      Upton went 1-for-4 with his 32nd home run of the season Tuesday against the Indians. Upton is heating up at the right time for his owners who are in the fantasy playoffs, delivering four homers over his last six games. The veteran slugger hasn't slowed up since joining the Angels, setting new career highs in doubles (42), home runs (32) and RBI (104).

    • Upton went 2-for-3 with two solo homers in Saturday's win over Texas. Upton entered with a respectable .277/.404/.447 slash line in September, but this was a breakout showing for the outfielder with his new club. It's been a monster fantasy campaign for Upton, as he's now up to a .281/.368/.546 slash line with 31 homers, 103 RBI, 11 stolen bases and 94 runs.
