Fantasy Impact

Justin Upton being evaluated for lower back tightness

Angels OF Justin Upton is being evaluated for lower back tightness.

Fantasy Impact

Upton left Tuesday's game with the injury. He'll be reevaluated on Wednesday. Hopefully it's a minor issue as the veteran outfielder has been red-hot as of late.

Justin Upton leaves Tuesday's game with apparent injury

Fantasy Impact

Justin Upton doubles and steals a base in 8-3 win over Detroit

Angels' OF Justin Upton went 2-for-5 with a single, a double, and a stolen base en route to an 8-3 win over the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Justin Upton doubles in loss to A's

Justin Upton went 1-for-5 with a double, a run scored, and a strikeout in an 8-4 loss to the division-leading A's.

Fantasy Impact

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.
