Padres | Justin Upton under the weather

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 10:49:10 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (illness) is not feeling well and might miss a couple days, according to manager Bud Black.

Fantasy Tip: Upton remains a top-end outfield name in fantasy baseball circles, and his floor remains high. He could see a drop in drafts because of his move to pitcher-friendly Petco Park, but Upton has the kind of power that plays anywhere. Scoop him up quickly if there's any value to be had.
