Tigers trade Justin Upton to Angels

Tigers trade Justin Upton to Angels

The Los Angeles Angels have acquired slugging outfielder Justin Upton from the Detroit Tigers, upgrading their lineup for the playoff race.

So far this season, Upton has accounted for 28 home runs and 94 RBI while sporting a.379 wOBA, his highest since the 2011 season.

Adding Upton to the lineup should be a big boost for the surging Angels, who are 18-10 in August and can pair him with a healthy Mike Trout in the middle of the lineup.

Ken Rosenthal with Major League Baseball on FOX and Jon Morosi of the Major League Baseball network are both reporting that the Tigers have a deal in place to send Upton to the Angels for minor leaguer Grayson Long and a player to be named later. As Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times notes, Angels left fielders have hit a combined 27 homers since the start of the 2015 season.

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. 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.

Reynolds said he and Upton spoke with Tigers GM Al Avila recently to gauge the direction the Tigers plan to take.

The Angels are now only a game behind the Minnesota Twins for the second wild card spot in the American League.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was first to report the deal was close. Maybin is slashing.235/.333/.351 with six home runs.
