Upton is not in the lineup Friday against the Phillies.
Upton has been riding the bench more often in September as he has continued to struggle with the bat. Over his last eight games played, he is in a 0-for-16 slump at the plate and only has five total hits in the month. Reed Johnson is in the lineup in left field with Jason Heyward sliding over to play center field.
