News: Upton smacked his fifth homer of the year as part of a 3-for-5 night against the Mets on Saturday. Impact: The younger Upton finished with three RBI, two runs and a swipe in the 7-5 victory, bringing his totals to 14 runs, 12 RBI and two stolen bases on the year. For now, his .333 average is nearly 60 points above his career average of .276, and with one more game against the Mets before opening a series with the Marlins -- a team he has batted .305 against in 52 career games -- there's no reason why his recent success shouldn't continue.(RotoWire, )

News: Upton went 2-for-4 with a walk, a strikeout, a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Nationals. Impact: Upton was 1-for-15 for the season and hitless in his last three starts coming into Saturday's game but got back on track with a pair of base knocks.

He's struck out eight times in 21 plate appearances thus far, but those come with the territory.(RotoWire, )
