Latest Update B.J. Upton is not in the Braves starting lineup on Monday.   Mon Sep, 01, 09:51 AM

Sure, you could say that it's because the Phillies are throwing lefty Cole Hamels on Monday, but deep down we all know that Upton is sitting because he's become one of the more atrocious players in the game right now and can best be summed up for our purposes as a "fantasy turd." Emilio Bonifacio will play center field Monday.Analyst: Howard Bender

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   A phenomenal athlete, he has a lanky frame with quick wrists, a great throwing arm and supreme speed. Is an elite center-fielder, above-average base-stealer, decent home-run hitter and patient at the dish.
Flaws:  : Has holes in his swing and takes a huge cut, so he piles up tremendous amounts of strikeouts. Can suffer from mental lapses in the field. Generally lacks polish. Can also be a little temperamental.

    B.J. Upton is not in the Braves' starting lineup on Thursday. 
  • You can't even say it's because they're facing a lefty, even though Jon Niese is on the hill for the Mets. The reason Upton is sitting for the third time in six games is because he stinks. Flat-out stinks. His .204 average and his .281 OBP are causing Fredi Gonzalez to upchuck every time he even thinks of putting the elder Upton into the lineup. You should fee the same way with your fantasy team.Analyst: Howard Bender

    B.J. Upton is not in the Braves' starting lineup on Tuesday
  • Surprise, surprise! B.J. Upton is riding the pine. He's 7-for-59 in the month of August with two home runs and just four RBI and is just killing the Braves with his ineptitude at the plate. It's a wonder they even let him get that many at-bats. Emilio Bonifacio will handle the work in center field Tuesday.Analyst: Howard Bender

    B.J. Upton is not in the Braves starting lineup on Friday.
  • Batting .208 for the year and 2-for-15 (.133) over his last five game? How does this guy even get into the lineup on a part-time basis? That's almost as mind-boggling as when some people were recommending him as a fantasy value pick during the spring. They, along with Fredi Gonzalez, all have to be huffing glue or something. This guy is just the worst. Emilio Bonifacio will replace him in center field Friday and the Braves should really consider a permanent switch.Analyst: Howard Bender
