Justin Upton to have walking boot removed

Justin Upton is scheduled to have his walking boot removed in about a week.

Fantasy Impact

Upton, who is currently sidelined with turf toe, is not expected to return until late May or more likely June. Upton is perennially a top-20 fantasy outfielder, so he continues to be well worth holding onto in leagues with IL spots and/or deep benches.

Justin Upton expected to miss 8-12 weeks

Angels manager Brad Ausmus said Justin Upton will miss 8-12 weeks with a toe injury.

Fantasy Impact

That's a huge blow for Upton, who has played at least 145 games in each of the last seven seasons. This will also almost certainly halt his streak of six straight campaigns with more than 25 home runs. That timetable means Upton will optimistically return at the end of May, but he's too valuable when healthy to drop beyond the shallowest of mixed leagues.

Justin Upton to start season on IL

Justin Upton will begin the regular season on the Injured List due to turf toe.

Fantasy Impact

Upton suffered the injury while colliding with the wall during a spring training game. While the timing isn't great, it doesn't appear that this will require much more than a minimum stay on the IL to start the season. In Upton's place, the team will look to Peter Bourjos in the outfield. Bourjos is not fantasy relevant.

Justin Upton (toe) likely to open season on injured list

Angels GM Billy Eppler said Tuesday that Justin Upton (toe) will likely open the season on the injured list.

Fantasy Impact

Upton injured his big toe running into a wall on Sunday. He underwent a MRI but the team is waiting on more information before determining what course of action they'll take. A timetable for his return should be announced in the next day or two, but for now fantasy owners should start getting a backup plan in place.

Fantasy Impact

Upton injured his toe in Sunday's Cactus League game. X-rays came back negative but Upton reportedly isn't feeling better. We should know more soon but for now his status for Opening Day should be downgraded to questionable.
