OF Justin Upton blasts two HR to power Padres
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(8/26/15) Justin Upton showed off his power stroke Wednesday, crushing two home runs to lead the Padres past the Nationals.
Upton connected for a two-run shot to left-center in the third inning to give the Padres a 4-0 advantage, and then hit a deep blast to center in the seventh to give San Diego a valuable insurance run.
Upton's first home runs since Aug. 10 give him 22 on the season.

|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(8/16/15) Padres left fielder Justin Upton went 0 for 3 with a walk in Sunday's loss to Colorado.

Tossed helmet knocks Padres 1B Yonder Alonso out of game
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/15/15) An angry Justin Upton resulted in a hurt Yonder Alonso in the eighth inning for the Padres on Saturday night, the Denver Post has reported.
Upton tossed his helmet after getting caught stealing to end the inning. The helmet ricocheted and hit Alonso, who was minding his own business in the dugout, in the forehead.
Alonso was replaced at first base by catcher Derek Norris with Austin Hedges taking over at catcher.
Upton was remorseful following the game. "It's childish," he told U-T San Diego. "I've got to do better than that."
Padres LF Justin Upton returns to starting lineup Wednesday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/5/15) Padres left fielder Justin Upton returned to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Brewers after missing Tuesday's game due to a bruised right thumb.
Upton is batting .235 (8 for 34) with one double, three home runs, eight RBI, six runs, two walks and 11 strikeouts in his last nine games.
Thumb injury keeps Padres' Justin Upton out of lineup on Tuesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/4/15) Padres left fielder Justin Upton is not in the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Brewers. Upton was lifted from Monday's game due to a bone bruise on his thumb, and he is seemingly not well enough to start on Tuesday. The team is expected to provide an update on his status in the near future.
Will Venable will get the start in left field and bat sixth in place of Upton on Tuesday.
|2014 summary: Justin Upton solidified his place as one of the game's top power hitters in 2014, but not really by doing anything differently. It's just with power numbers on the decline across the league, his 29 ended up tying for 12th among all hitters. He was at least more consistent than in his first year with the Braves, when he hit 20 of his 27 home runs in April and August. His 102 RBI on one of the league's worst offensive teams were also a testament to his consistency.|
Playing time status: Upton is set to hit the free agent market next year while still at the beginning of his prime, so the Braves moved him to the Padres for a package of prospects. He'll obviously play every day, and has hit well in pitcher-friendly Petco Park -- .291/.359/.541 with 10 home runs and 11 doubles in 192 career plate appearances.
2015 outlook: Given the hype as a former No. 1 overall pick, Upton has a reputation for disappointing in Fantasy, but the good far outweighs the bad with him. He strikes out so much that you can't expect him to help much in batting average, but he makes up for it, at least in points leagues, with an above-average walk rate and is obviously a great source of power. Plus, at his age, there's still some potential for improvement. He's a top 12 outfielder, though on the back end of that group, and you can look to draft him beginning in Round 3.
