Braves | Justin Upton getting hot

Atlanta Braves OF Justin Upton is getting his timing back at the plate and has four home runs in the first four games in August. Upton hit 12 homers in April but then had a total of four in May, June and July. Upton is seeing the ball much better, and he and hitting Greg Walker worked in July to get rid of his high leg kick in order to help him get to the ball faster. Upton didn't feel comfortable with the change and re-added the leg kick. "He's doing a better job of getting his foot down and then swinging the bat, instead of all of it happening real late and rushed. When he gets there on time and can stay there, he's everything you want Justin Upton to be," Walker said.

Fantasy Tip: Upton is a very streaky hitter. Ride him again now that he's hot and is comfortable at the plate.
