Angels' Justin Upton: Held out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (knee) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rays.

The 33-year-old exited Tuesday's contest with a bruised right knee and will miss at least one game due to the injury. Juan Lagares was recalled and is starting in left field Wednesday for the Angels.

Angels' Justin Upton: Exits with bruised knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton was removed from Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay with a bruised right knee.

The 33-year-old went 0-for-1 with a walk before being replaced in left field by Jose Rojas for the start of the sixth inning. The severity of the injury remains unclear, so Upton should be considered day-to-day until his status is updated.

Angels' Justin Upton: Notches first steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Monday's loss to Tampa Bay.

The veteran was good for double-digit steals every season early in his career but swiped only one bag over 105 games in 2019 and 2020 combined. The theft Monday was his first this season, though his .293 OBP indicates that he hasn't had an abundance of opportunities. It's no longer wise to count on much in the way of steals from Upton, so anything he can add in that department for fantasy managers who roster him should be viewed as a pleasant surprise.

Angels' Justin Upton: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Rangers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Manager Joe Maddon told Ardaya that it is a scheduled day off for the veteran outfielder. Jose Rojas is starting in left field and batting sixth.

Angels' Justin Upton: Extends hitting streak with homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during Monday's win over the Rangers.

Upton stayed hot by cranking a solo long ball against Jordan Lyles in the third inning. The 33-year-old is now on a 10-game hitting streak -- his longest in four years -- bringing his season slash line to .239/.304/.479 with five home runs.

Angels' Justin Upton: Good to go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (lower body) will start in left field and bat fifth Thursday against the Astros.

Upton exited late in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers due to lower-body cramps, but after getting rehydrated, he's ready to go for the Angels' four-game series in Houston. The veteran outfielder has provided four home runs and 11 RBI through his 14 games this season, but an elevated 29.3 percent strikeout rate has limited him to a .235 batting average.

Angels' Justin Upton: Exits with cramps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton was removed from Wednesday's loss to the Rangers with cramps, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The 33-year-old exited after showing some discomfort during his eighth-inning at-bat, but manager Joe Maddon said the outfielder is "fine" after the game. Upton went 1-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season Wednesday before leaving the contest and could be back in the lineup for Thursday's series opener at Houston.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday's loss to Texas.

Upton began a seventh-inning Angels rally with a solo shot to right center field. The blast was his third of the season and pushed his RBI total to 10. Upton is slashing .227/.300/.477 on the campaign.

Angels' Justin Upton: Hammers grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, a double and two runs scored in Friday's 10-3 win over Minnesota.

Upton put the game away with his grand slam in the seventh inning, giving the Angels a 9-3 lead. It was his second homer of the season and first since April 3. Upton had missed the two previous games while nursing a back injury.

Angels' Justin Upton: Back in lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (back) is starting Friday against the Twins.

Upton had missed the past two games due to back stiffness. He'll play left field and bat fourth during his return to action Friday. In 10 games to begin the season, Upton has hit .194 with a home run and five RBI.

April 14, 2021 01:24 PM
Angels' Justin Upton: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (back) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Upton was a late scratch from Tuesday's game due to back stiffness, and he'll miss a second straight game during Wednesday's series finale. Jon Jay will start in left field Wednesday, batting ninth. The Angels have a day off Thursday, so Upton will have an additional day to rest prior to Friday's game against Minnesota.

Angels' Justin Upton: Scratched with back stiffness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton was scratched from Tuesday's lineup in Kansas City due to back stiffness.

The 33-year-old was penciled in at his usual spot in left field for the Halos, but he was instead a late removal from the starting nine. The team's outfield depth is already being tested with Juan Lagares (calf) landing on the injured list, though the severity of Upton's back issue remains unclear. Jon Jay, who was just added to the 40-man roster, is starting in left field Tuesday.

Angels' Justin Upton: Lifts team to win with first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 1-for-4 with a go-ahead, two-run home run in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Jared Walsh tripled against Evan Marshall to tie the game in the eighth inning and Upton followed with his first long ball of the year. It would prove to be the game-winner. Upton is 2-for-10 with Saturday's homer, three total RBI, four strikeouts and two walks through three games in 2021.

Angels' Justin Upton: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (illness) will bat fifth and play left field Tuesday against Cleveland.

Upton was scratched from the lineup Monday with an illness, but it evidently wasn't a particularly serious one. The veteran has gone 7-for-16 with three homers so far this spring and will look to stay hot Tuesday.

Angels' Justin Upton: Scratched with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton was scratched from the lineup with a non-COVID illness Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

It sounds as if Upton should be able to get back on the field before too long. If he is indeed able to do so, his preparation for Opening Day shouldn't be significantly affected. Juan Lagares will replace him in left field Monday against the Reds.

Angels' Justin Upton: Launches two homers Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 2-for-2 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Monday's Cactus League loss to Milwaukee.

The veteran outfielder went deep in both the second and fourth innings, bringing his spring long-ball total to a team-leading three. It's only exhibition play, of course, but the strong start bodes well for Upton after he struggled to a career-worst .204/.289/.422 slash line during the abbreviated 2020 campaign.

Angels' Justin Upton: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

The Angels are resting several players after getting officially eliminated from postseason contention Saturday. Taylor Ward will be the left fielder in his absence.

Angels' Justin Upton: Goes deep Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Angels' Justin Upton: Returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (head) is starting in left field and batting sixth Sunday against the Rangers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The veteran outfielder was hit in the helmet by a pitch Friday and took Saturday off, but he'll rejoin the starting nine for Sunday's contest. Upton has rebounded in September with a .326/.404/.587 slash line, three homers and 10 RBI through 13 games.
