Justin Upton: (Hand) Out Sunday
Update: Upton has a sore right hand and is not in Sunday's lineup, the Atlanta Journal-Consitution reports.

Recommendation: Upton will sit for the second day in a row, but it sounds like the Braves are hoping to have him back Tuesday after an off day to start the week. The hand injury may explain some of Upton's recent struggles, though we don't think it can explain his ongoing 37-for-178 (.208 BA) stretch that includes just three home runs and eight extra-base hits.
