Latest Update Justin Upton went 2-for 5 with a double and three RBI in the Braves victory against the Nationals on Wednesday. Wed Sep, 10, 08:56 PM
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.
The more successful Upton brother continues a successful season for Atlanta. He has 27 long balls on the year and is just four RBIs away from 100 on the year. Upton should continue to be started in all formats as his overall numbers are on pace or better from last year.Analyst: Colby Conway
Upton is having a very good year at the plate, batting .282 with 27 home runs and 93 RBIs. Barring any type of season-ending slump, Upton should reach the 100 RBI mark for the first time in his career.Analyst: David Kerr
Upton left Tuesday's game with a triceps contusion and with the early start Wednesday, he'll take a seat to rest. Ryan Doumit, who replaced him during Tueday's game, will get the start Wednesday and bat clean-up.Analyst: Howard Bender
Prior to his departure, Upton was hitless in one at-bat. He will be reevaluated tomorrow, but for now, consider him day-to-day.Analyst: David Kerr
