Fantastic News; B.J. Upton Shouldn't Miss Any Time

New, comments

Instead Upton is being listed as day-to-day, but should be in the lineup when the Rays play next, which is of course Tuesday in Seattle.

Upton has been excellent defensively but thus far has struggled offensively. His plate discipline is still wicked -- he's swinging out of zone on only 15% of pitches, just like last year -- but his contact skills haven't been there quite yet, and Upton has whiffed nearly 40% of the time. That seemed to have been improving over the last few games and to his credit Upton has still been walking and -- successfully -- bunting to get his way on board.
