|Justin Upton to get first off day Wednesday|

(5/21/13) Braves outfielder Justin Upton has never played in every game during the course of his six-plus seasons in the majors, and he will not do so in 2013. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tuesday he plans to give Upton the day off Wednesday, his first of the season.
Upton has appeared in the Braves' first 45 games this season, and has posted a league-high 14 home runs and a career-best .997 on-base plus slugging percentage.

|Justin Upton has big day against former team |
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) Braves outfielder Justin Upton had a big day at the plate during Monday's series opener against the Diamondbacks. Upton, who was making his first appearance at Chase Field since being traded to Atlanta, matched his season-high with four hits in a 10-1 win, including belting his 13th home run of the year.
Upton ripped the two-run shot off of starter Wade Miley in the sixth inning, snapping his 14-game homerless drought. He also doubled and singled twice, finishing 4 for 5 with two RBI and a pair of runs scored.
Upton has hit safely in four of his last five games and is batting .368 (7 for 19) with one home run and two RBI over that span.
|Justin Upton reaches base three times|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/11/13) Braves left fielder Justin Upton reached base three times Friday night, going 1 for 2 with a double and two walks against the Giants in an 8-2 loss. He failed to score a run, breaking a five-game stretch in which he had crossed the plate at least once in each game.
Despite not homering since April 27, Upton still has the major-league lead with 12 home runs on the season.
|Justin Upton's on a disturbing every-other-season trend that -- good news! -- has him due for a very good season in 2013. The problem with this, however, is that that players never finish neatly with the every-other-year thing -- they always break out of it. And if Upton repeats his 2010/2012 (decent) numbers and not his 2009/2011 (awesome) ones, owners may have used a high draft pick on stats they could have gotten in much later rounds. Upton has a ton of talent and potential, he just can't seem to be consistent with it. In 2012, he hit .280 with 17 home runs, 18 steals and 24 doubles. Good numbers, but not the .289/31/21/39 he compiled in 2011. Confusing, erratic, but full of potential, Upton has a chance to be great, it's just tough deciding if your Fantasy team is the best place to figure out whether Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde will be showing up in 2013. However, we must now consider the X-factor of Justin playing alongside his older brother, B.J. every day in Atlanta, following a January trade. For now, we'll lean toward the, "it's good for him," side. Upton should be taken in the second or third round on Draft Day. (Updated 1/24/13)|
