Angels' Justin Upton: Looks fine in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton posted a respectable .222/.348/.444 slash line in 24 Cactus League plate appearances.

Upton dealt with patellar tendinitis late last season, but he didn't seem to show any ill effects this spring. If he can stay healthy and rebound from his .215/.309/.416 showing last season, he'll benefit from an Angels lineup that added Anthony Rendon to the heart of the order over the offseason.

Angels' Justin Upton: Set for spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (knee) will make his spring debut Tuesday against the Reds, batting fifth and playing left field.

Upton was shut down in mid-September due to patellar tendinitis. With over a month until Opening Day, he should still have plenty of time to get ready for the regular season. The veteran will look to rebound from an injury-filled 2019 campaign in which he hit .215/.309/.416 in just 63 games.

Angels' Justin Upton: On crutches for 2-3 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (knee) received a PRP injection Friday and will be on crutches for two or three weeks, Richard Justice of MLB.com reports.

The procedure is meant to promote healing in Upton's ailing right knee. The 32-year-old was diagnosed with patellar tendinitis last week and has been ruled out for the rest of the season. He should be at full strength when spring training opens in 2020.

Angels' Justin Upton: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (knee) will not play again this season, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Upton underwent an MRI on his ailing right knee Wednesday and was diagnosed with patellar tendinitis. He'll have a PRP injection next week and should be able to return at full strength for spring training. Brian Goodwin, Taylor Ward and Michael Hermosillo are options to start in left field in Upton's absence.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton (knee) isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Rays, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Upton has been nursing a knee issue over the last few days, though the Angels have yet to reveal his diagnosis, even after he underwent an MRI. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day until further notice.

Angels' Justin Upton: Battling knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton underwent an MRI on his right knee Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Upton also dealt with a right knee injury during spring training, but the two issues aren't necessarily related. The 32-year-old should be considered day-to-day until the results of the MRI are announced.

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

Angels' Justin Upton: Blasts game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a victory over the White Sox on Friday.

Upton struck out twice in his first three at-bats but atoned in a big way in the ninth inning, launching a 406-foot shot to left field for what proved to be the winning run. The 32-year-old has struggled to the tune of a .220 batting average this season but has begun to turn things around in September, going 6-for-19 with three homers and six RBI in five games.

Angels' Justin Upton: Drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI on Thursday against the Athletics.

Upton began the productive performance with a two-RBI double in the first inning and followed it up with an RBI base knock four frames later. Though Upton has struggled since getting a late start to his season, he's hit better of late by recording at least one hit in five of his last starts -- highlighted by two home runs. He now owns a .220/.313/.420 line across 240 plate appearances for the season.

Angels' Justin Upton: Homers again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.

Upton hit from the sixth spot in the order for the first time in two years and responded by reaching base three times. He swatted his second home run in as many days, a shot to left field in the sixth inning that temporarily tied the score. The veteran slugger is trying to turn things around in September after hitting only .200 with 32 strikeouts across 80 at-bats in August.

Angels' Justin Upton: Blasts solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to Boston.

Upton brought the Angels to within a run with a 432-foot shot to center field in the eighth inning. The long ball was his first since Aug. 17 and his first extra-base hit in his last 11 games. The 32-year-old is slashing .211/.307/.402 with 10 homers and 35 RBI while striking out 70 times in 228 plate appearances this season.

Angels' Justin Upton: Hitting fifth again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton is slotted fifth in the batting order against Boston on Sunday.

For the second straight game, Upton is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth against a left-handed starter. Meanwhile, Albert Pujols has been moved up to the cleanup spot that Upton has occupied most of the season. The change comes amidst a late-season slump that has seen Upton hit just .121 (4-for-33) with no extra-base hits over his last 10 games.

Angels' Justin Upton: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton sits for the first time in over two weeks. He's hit just .186/.333/.372 in the 13 games since his last off day, part of a down season overall in which he's managed a poor .207/.307/.391 slash line. Brian Goodwin starts in left field in his absence.

Angels' Justin Upton: Blasts ninth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's 6-5 win over the White Sox.

The left fielder has added 29 RBI and 26 runs scored while hitting .215/.313/.430 in 43 games this season, his worst line since his rookie year in 2007.

Angels' Justin Upton: Homers, drivers in four
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton launched a three-run homer in the sixth inning off reliever Josh Osich to extend the Angels' lead to 8-2. Through 41 games this season, Upton is batting just .215/.304/.417 with eight home runs, though he does seem to be trending in the right direction as of late.

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

Angels' Justin Upton: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

August 11, 2019 08:32 AM
Angels' Justin Upton: Smacks three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer and four RBI in a 12-4 victory over the Red Sox on Saturday.

The 31-year-old missed a big portion of the beginning of the season, so his recent 4-for-43 slump has dropped his average nearly 50 points because of his small sample. The good news, though, is Upton has mostly maintained his slugging percentage and has a .197 ISO. He is batting .212 with seven home runs, 21 RBI, 22 runs and one steal in 132 at-bats this season.
