JUSTIN UPTON RUMORS & GOSSIP
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Of all the balls that flew out of Petco Park on Sunday, the one that had the biggest impact was Jedd Gyorko's 438-foot drive to straightaway center field that helped the San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5.
Gyorko was hitting just .145 when he stepped into the batter's box as a pinch hitter. The Rockies had just replaced lefty reliever Christian Friedrich...

There was a good chance Justin Upton would never make to the Padres.
There’s a funny game I like to play in my head when it comes to the San Diego Padres, and my favorite sports teams in general. Everybody does it, either subconsciously or intentionally. The “What if” game. It’s a torturous process to try and think what could have been had your favorite team just gotten...
After missing a game due to a sore quad, Justin Upton singled in his first at-bat for the Padres in Monday's game against the Rockies. Dennis Lin of U-T San Diego shared Upton's thoughts on his return:"It's still kind of a little bit sore, but I went out and tested it and it feels a little better," Upton said before Monday's game against the Rockies. "...The team's playing well....
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres won their third consecutive series when they took two out of three against the Cubs in Chicago. The Padres are 8-5, and if it weren’t for Adrian Gonzales losing his mind in the opening series they could very well be 9-4.
What’s been most encouraging about the Padres’ start is they’re not just winning, but they’re also passing the eye...

The regular season is right around the corner, which means it’s time to disguise irrational predictions as bold ones. There hasn’t been this much excitement about the Padres in over a decade, and I can’t wait to watch it all unfold. Here are five predictions for 2015.
1. Justin Upton will hit 50 home runs
Upton’s careerhigh is 31, which he set back in 2011...
Well, this is fascinating. A day after finalizing the Matt Kemp trade, and on the day the Wil Myers trade is expected to be announced, the Padres have reportedly agreed to acquire Justin Upton as well. I think it’s safe to say that A.J. Preller puts a high value on right-handed power hitting outfielders. As […]
The Atlanta Braves have had a busy offseason that could get busier in the next few weeks with the imminent trade of slugging outfielder Justin Upton. The question is when, not if the Braves will trade Upton, here is why:
Upton is in a contract year, and the Braves are rebuilding: Upton is entering the final year of his six-year, $50 million contract he signed while still a...
