Upton is currently riding a five-game hit streak, hitting .391 over that span with three multi-hit performances. His third stolen base surely adds some value to his performance as well, and his current .249 batting average is as high as its been since he was hitting .294 on April 5th. Upton will look to continue his improved hitting as the Halos face off against the Tigers on Sunday.

Upton has hit safely in 11 of the 14 games that the Halos have played in June, good enough for a slash line of .306/.460/.653 for the month. Compare that to his May slash line of .188/.258/.388, and it looks like Upton may be a nice pickup off of waivers this season. Although he doesn't provide as much upside in terms of RBIs hitting out of the leadoff spot, his consistent offensive production and power indicate a rise in stock for the 33-year-old outfielder.
