Braves | Justin Upton stays red hot

Atlanta Braves OF Justin Upton had four hits, including his sixth home run of the year, in the team's victory over the Miami Marlins Monday, April 8. It was the eighth four-hit game of his career, and he has six homers in only 25 at-bats this season. Last year, he hit his sixth home run of the year in his 228th at-bat. Upton became the 10th player since 1916 to have at least six long balls through his team's first seven contests, and the only Braves player among this group of 10. He believes he's on a mission to prove that the Arizona Diamondbacks were wrong to trade him away.

Fantasy Tip: It's safe to say that Upton is enjoying his new digs in Atlanta. However, he has only eight RBIs to show for his six home runs, which may be more indicative of the Bravos' lineup surrounding him this season. Upton will cool off eventually, so just be prepared for when that comes.
