San Diego Padres outfielder Justin Upton is not in the lineup Wednesday against the San Francisco Giants because of an oblique injury, according to the team's official website. Upton is not in the lineup for the third consecutive game after suffering the injury Sunday. He was initially in the lineup Sunday against the Colorado Rockies but was removed before first pitch, though the game was eventually rained out. The oblique has been an issue for Upton for much of July, which may have tempered the market for him, as the Padres are looking to trade him before the July 31 deadline. Upton was acquired this past offseason from the Atlanta Braves, but he is hitting just .252 with 15 home runs, 49 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 89 games after hitting .270 with 34 home runs and 102 RBI in 154 games last year.

San Diego Padres outfielder Justin Upton could miss multiple days with an oblique injury, according to Mighty 1090 AM Radio. Upton was removed from Sunday's game after tweaking his oblique muscle and remains out of the lineup for Monday's game. "It got to the point where I couldn't rotate," Upton said. "It feels like something has locked up. Instead of pushing it, we felt coming out of the game would be the best thing. At this point, I'll continue treatment. For me, I can play through anything. Hopefully, we can clean it up for good." Several teams have expressed interest in the 27-year-old as the trade deadline approaches, and the team will err on the side of caution whether they intend to deal him or not. Upton will be evaluated again prior to Tuesday's game, though he could be out until at least Wednesday as a precaution.
