Justin Upton Biography

Justin Upton was born August 25, 1987 and is a professional baseball player. He plays in Major League Baseball as a left fielder for the Atlanta Braves. Previously, he played for the Arizona Diamondbacks from 20072012.

Upton was selected first overall by the Diamondbacks in the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft. He is considered a 5-tool player, acknowledged for having hitting prowess as well as solid fielding capabilities. Justin and his brother, B.J. Upton, are the only brothers in Major League Baseball to ever be selected in the number one and two slots of a first round draft.

Upton was selected to be an all-star in his hometown team for the second time in his career, along with his teammate, Miguel Montero.

In 2011, Upton batted .289 with 31 home runs, but on defense he led all major league outfielders in errors, with 13. He also led the NL in being hit by the pitch, with 19 (a Diamondbacks record), and was second in the league in doubles (39) and third in runs scored (105) and extra base hits (75). He won a Fielding Bible Award in 2011 as the best fielding right fielder in MLB.

Through 2011, Upton was 2nd all-time of Diamondback hitters in HBP (30), 3rd in slugging percentage (.487) and OPS (.845), 4th in OBP (.357) and strikeouts (573), and 5th in triples (24). For these accomplishments, he was awarded one of the three National League OF Silver Slugger awards.

He came in fourth in the voting for the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player Award, behind winner Ryan Braun, Matt Kemp, and Prince Fielder.

On January 20, 2013, the Arizona Diamondbacks completed a trade with the Atlanta Braves that sent Justin and Chris Johnson to the Braves in exchange for Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, shortstop prospect Nick Ahmed, pitching prospect Zeke Spruill, minor league first baseman Brandon Drury. The trade allowed Justin to play with his brother B.J., as he signed with Atlanta earlier in the offseason.
