Upton went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in Sunday's win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Upton did most of his damage with a fifth inning grand slam off of Boston reliever Heath Hembree. With 13 home runs and 40 RBI this season, Upton is delivering quality numbers from the middle of a strong Detroit lineup. His .868 OPS would also be his highest since the .898 mark he posted in 2011, when Upton finished fourth in National League MVP voting.

Upton went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

His eighth-inning blast, Upton's 12th homer of the year, put the game out of reach on a night when Buck Farmer and the Tigers bullpen held the Angels offense completely in check. Upton's current .866 OPS would be his best mark since 2011 if he can keep it up, and he's well on his way to his second consecutive 30-homer campaign.

Upton (quadriceps) is in the lineup Friday against the White Sox, batting sixth and playing left field.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Brad Ausmus didn't think Upton's quad strain was serious, and with an off day to rest the ailment, it seems like that statement held true. Upton has hits in five of his last seven games and has three doubles in that span, something that should keep him in the middle third of Detroit's order.

Manager Brad Ausmus doesn't think Upton's quad strain is serious, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Upton injured his quad while running to second on his double, but both Ausmus and Upton both downplayed the severity of the injury afterwards. He'll be re-evaluated Thursday, at which point his status for Friday's series opener against the White Sox should become clearer.

Upton went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Thursday's loss to the Astros. He also stole a base.

EDGE Analysis

Upton had been mired in an 0-for-16 slump over his last five games, so it's nice to see him post a multi-hit effort. Upton's days of 20 home runs and 20 steals look like they're behind him, but with nine home runs and four steals this season, he could possibly get to double digits in both categories if he runs a bit more during the summer months.

EDGE Analysis

Upton now has 26 runs this season, to go along with eight home runs and 20 RBI. With J.D. Martinez back in the Detroit lineup, Upton should continue to rack up the counting stats for a team that figures to score plenty of runs.

Upton went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Upton victimized Angels starter Ricky Nolasco once again, extending a successful track record against the veteran right-hander that now includes a career .444 average and three home runs. The slugging outfielder roped a 358-foot laser shot to left in the sixth that gave the Tigers a 3-2 advantage at the time, extending his hitting streak to six games in the process. That stretch has included three homers, and thanks to more patience at the plate, Upton has now reached safely in 14 consecutive contests. The veteran already compiled 20 walks on the season and has seen his walk rate jump more than seven percent over last season to 15.4.
