Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   A phenomenal athlete, he possesses all five tools. Owns big-time home-run power. Has a rare mix of size, wheels and raw natural bat-speed. Throws well from the outfield.
Flaws:  : Strikes out too much. Has shown he can sometimes lose focus (at the plate, on the basepaths and in the field). Needs to keep working on his fundamentals and consistency.

    Justin Upton hits 23rd home run
  • Upton has now hit safely in nine of his last 10 games while adding four home runs, 11 RBI and eight runs scored in that stretch. Considering how well he has played of late, it is clear that the minor hamstring injury sustained on Thursday is no longer bothering him. As long as he is healthy, Upton is one of the best outfield options to own down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck

    Justin Upton belts 22nd home run
  • Upton is now slashing .281/.357/.509 with 22 home runs, 73 RBI and seven stolen bases through 424 at-bats as he continues to be a great power source for both the Braves and his fantasy owners in 2014. However, his 29.9 percent strikeout rate is going to hamper him in his progression, but at last he is starting to take more walks (50 BB).Analyst: Matthew Beck

    Upton leaves game with hamstring injury
  • Upton was 1-for-2 with a double, two RBI and a pair of walks before leaving the game. He was tagging from second to third and slid awkwardly into the bag. The team says that the injury is just a mild strain of his hamstring, but he's likely to miss Friday's action just to play it safe.Analyst: Howard Bender
