Padres' Melvin Upton needs at least 40 at-bats before DL activation
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) With Yonder Alonso and Wil Myers sidelined with injuries, this could Padres outfielder Melvin Upton's best opportunity to show he can still contribute, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Upton, who has been sidelined all season with a left toe injury, began a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso on Monday. He is hitting .333 (3 for 9) with a double and an RBI in two games. He will need another 40 at-bats before he is activated from the disabled list.
"His pride is kicking in," a friend of Upton said. "He doesn't want to be remembered as the worst contract in baseball history."

Padres OF Melvin Upton participates in extended spring training

|(5/11/15) Padres outfielder Melvin Upton played in his first live action of the season when he went 1 for 3 during an extended spring training game Monday, reports ReynoldsSports.com
Upton has been sidelined with a toe injury. He is scheduled to begin rehab games in about a week.
|2014 summary: Melvin Upton, formerly known as B.J., set out to redeem himself from a disastrous first season in Atlanta, and at least in spring training, he looked like he might succeed. But once the bell rang, it was more of the same. Technically, he improved across the board, and his 12 home runs and 20 steals at least gave him some value in Rotisserie leagues, but he still finished with the lowest batting average and sixth-lowest OPS among full-time players.|
Playing time status: With Justin Upton, Jason Heyward and Evan Gattis out of the picture, Melvin Upton's role couldn't be any more secure, even with his struggles. The problem is he's already hurt. He could potentially miss all of April with inflammation in his left foot.
2015 outlook: For all the misery Upton has brought to the Braves, Fantasy owners and the baseball world in general the last two years, there is at least one glimmer of hope once he gets back on the diamond: The Braves hired Kevin Seitzer, one of the rare hitting coaches who has actually made a measurable difference in a player's career. That player was Alex Gordon, and Upton has offered to let Seitzer reconstruct his swing in a similar manner. That's no reason to draft Upton outside of NL-only leagues, but it at least makes him worth monitoring given his raw talent.
