Latest News
B.J. Upton sitting out Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/9/14) Braves outfielder B.J. Upton is not in the team's starting lineup Wednesday. 

Upton will be replaced by Jordan Schafer in the outfield. Andrelton Simmons will move to the second spot in the order while Upton sits. 

Same old, same old for B.J. Upton
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(3/26/14) It would be an exaggeration to say that B.J. Upton has gained back the trust of Fantasy owners this spring, but after last season's misery, it's more than a little surprising that he is being rostered in 58 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com.

That's not a hearty endorsement, but that ownership rate -- along with a 234 Rotisserie ADP -- suggests that the Braves' center fielder has been the target of some late-round gambles in standard mixed leagues. Spring training stats can be very misleading, but there are few encouraging signs there for those who might be looking for them. Upton has struck out 20 times in 58 at-bats with three extra base-hits, none of which are home runs.

If you find yourself in the later rounds of a mixed league draft -- even a fairly deep one -- you're probably better off going with relatively unproven types like Avisail Garcia, Oswaldo Arcia or Junior Lake than to take a flier on Upton.

Braves manager considering lineup options
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/14) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Tuesday he is leaning toward batting B.J. Upton second in the lineup, per MLB.com. Gonzalez said he is also mulling batting Chris Johnson cleanup and dropping Evan Gattis to sixth or seventh in the lineup.
B.J. Upton happy he's hitting to all fields
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/14) Braves outfielder B.J. Upton, who is coming off the worst season of his career, has been pleased with his results this spring, particularly his ability to hit to all fields, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Upton is batting .294 (15 for 51) with three extra-base hits, four stolen bases and a .357 on-base percentage in 17 games. He has also struck out 17 times.

"I think the majority of my hits have been up the middle or to right field, and that’s a good sign," Upton said. "I’m not reading too much into the (number of) hits in spring training, but it’s the location of the hits. That’s a pretty good sign, man."

Upton spent the offseason refining his approach, which included eliminating some of the excessive movement he accumulated in recent years.

"It feels pretty good, man," he said. "I can’t complain. It feels a lot more natural than it did at the beginning of spring. Now it’s just maintaining, keeping it where it’s at."

B.J. Upton able to play on consecutive days
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/10/14) Braves outfielder B.J. Upton has played the last two days after sitting out Saturday because of an illness. Upton has gone 3 for 6 (.500) with one walk in his last two games, including a 2-for-4 performance Monday against the Phillies.

Upton is batting .269 (7 for 26) with one RBI, two doubles, two walks and eight strikeouts in nine spring games.
