Angels Trade For Outfielder Justin Upton

Angels Trade For Outfielder Justin Upton

According to multiple reports, the Detroit Tigers have traded Justin Upton to the Los Angeles Angels for two minor leaguers.

Upton has 28 homers and 94 RBIs this season while hitting.279/.362/.542.

That's also true because August 31 is the last day a trade can be made that will allow the acquisition to play on the postseason roster. Angels manager Mike Scioscia has used Cameron Maybin, Ben Revere and five other players in left this season. Jon Morosi from MLB Network said the teams were in agreement.

The Angels made this trade just before the September 1st deadline so should the Angels make their way into the playoffs Upton will be eligible to play. He's young enough and potentially under control until 2022, so he *could* sit alongside Trout in the lineup for years to come.

He applauded officers' restraint, saying it forestalled greater violence. They assaulted at least four people by punching and kicking them.

Upton, who started his career with the Diamondbacks, can opt out of his deal after the season, but reports indicate he has not guaranteed that he won't opt out. If you were to stay with Anaheim, it would be costly for the Angels. They finally get Josh Hamilton's massive contract off their books after this season, and should Upton have a change of heart and opt-in to the remaining four years of his deal his $88.5 million would essentially replace Hamilton's.

Still, it's an obvious need for the Angels.

The Tigers tried to sell off their big contracts before the trade deadline, but couldn't because let's face it, they have older guys that make way too much money.

This might not be all we see from the Tigers either. Once that happened, the Tigers resumed talks with teams to trade the outfielder.
