Angels' Justin Upton: Homers, reaches base twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upton went 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

His power has also been notable of late, as he has homered three times over his last eight games and has blasted 11 long balls on the campaign through just 183 at-bats. He's just one home run away from tying what he accomplished in the 2019 season.
