Fantasy baseball Stat Focus: Upton's split stats show source of slump
Of course, Upton's season stats still look pretty nice, especially the 15 homers (tied for 19th in the majors), .806 OPS and six steals to boot. But nearly all those numbers happened in a one-month span. Upton's splits tell us he has not been the same since that huge April. What's more, he has historically sputtered as the season drags through the summer into the fall. He's a career .276/.354/.505 hitter in July, .277/.338/.449 hitter in August, and .265/.331/.464 hitter in September. Get out in that marketplace and start shopping Upton now.
