A Christian Arroyo shaped supernova appears in sky. Two up and two down in the latest installment of LF follies.

Tigers notebook: Justin Upton doubtful for Thursday

Andrew Romine replaced Upton on Tuesday and will likely get both starts on Wednesday and Thursday. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Detroit Tigers left fielder Justin Upton, out of the lineup on Wednesday night, is unlikely to play in the series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday afternoon, manager Brad Ausmus said. Upton left Tuesday's game in the seventh inning after suffering a right wrist contusion during a slide into second base.  Upton slid into second base just as Rays shortstop Tim Beckham was throwing to first to try to complete a double play....

Would Melvin Upton or Drew Stubbs be an immediate improvement in left field?

Would Melvin Upton or Drew Stubbs be an immediate improvement in left field?

Expectations would be low. They should probably be lower. In Thursday night’s game, Jarrett Parker was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. He saw 11 pitches in the game, and eight of them were strikes. He had a triple the night before, and it was sorely needed, but he’s still all kinds of messed up. I feel bad for both him and Chris Marrero. They don’t want to press, but they know that every one of their plate appearances will be scrutinized by the manager, front office, and fans. At the same time, the Giants are running around signing outfielders. This can’t help with the sense of panic...

Gorkys Hernandez is 2 for 25 and his misplay cost the Giants three runs in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Arizona -- and now the Giants have a veteran alternative for their unproductive outfield.

Giants finalize minor league deal with Melvin Upton Jr.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants finalized a minor league deal with Melvin Upton Jr. on Wednesday morning, adding a depth piece that looks more and more critical by the game. Upton Jr., released earlier this month by the Blue Jays, is at the facility in Scottsdale getting up to speed at extended spring training. He is expected to join Triple-A Sacramento at some point soon.

Do the San Francisco Giants need to turn to Melvin Upton Jr. sooner rather than later?

Even though the 2017 Major League Baseball season is only a little over a week old, some trends are worth worrying about. In the San Francisco Giants‘ case, the situation in need of action is their left field position. The two players currently splitting time in left field so far this season are Jarrett Parker […] The post Do the San Francisco Giants need to turn to Melvin Upton Jr. sooner rather than later? appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Tuesday Bantering: Blue Jays Claim Ty Kelly Off Waivers

Your morning update for everything Blue Jays. The Blue Jays claimed Ty Kelly off of waivers from the Mets yesterday, reports Shi Davidi of Sportsnet. Kelly, predominantly a third baseman and left fielder, is set to report to triple-A Buffalo and will provide depth in the outfield after the release of Melvin Upton Jr. Kelly had 71 plate appearances in 2016, his second year at the major league level, in which he had a .241 batting average and .351 OBP. To make room for Kelly on the 40-man roster, the Blue Jays have moved Rule 5 Draft pick Glenn Sparkman to the 60-day disabled list. In...

The Giants signed Melvin Upton, and he’s probably a good idea

A better idea than Chris Marrero, at least. Do you remember spring training? I vaguely do. It’s almost like a dream. I think Gordon Beckham was there? And Michael Morse was there. And my middle-school teacher was there, but he wasn’t really my middle-school teacher, you know? Anyway, during spring training Chris Marrero hit a bunch of home runs, and he made the Giants’ active roster. Cut to the regular season, and Marrero has one hit in 13 at-bats. Granted, that one hit drove in two runs on Sunday, and it was a very important hit, but if you’re having second thoughts about him,...
