The Upton Hot Start

Atlanta Braves left fielder Justin Upton had a spectacular first month of 2014.  In April he slugged .641 and reached base 4-of-10 times he came to the plate.  To boot, Upton is the current NL leader in home runs with 8.

You may already know that this is Justin Upton’s second best April of his career.  Last season, his first with the Braves, he hit 12 home runs with a .734 SLG.

For whatever reason Upton has historically been better in the spring than the fall.  But if he can buck the trend in 2014 he should easily best his career high of 31 home runs he smashed in 2011.
