News: Upton is out of the lineup Thursday against the Mets. Impact: As was the case late last season, it appears manager Fredi Gonzalez's patience is wearing thin with Upton and his lack of on-base skills. Upton will sit out for the third time in six games, making way for Emilio Bonifacio to handle center field.(RotoWire, )

News: Upton is out of the lineup Friday against the Reds. Impact: Just when it seemed like Upton couldn't sink any lower, he has hit .132/.270/.283 in August (17 games), lowering his overall OPS down to .611. Manager Fredi Gonzalez finally caved and removed Upton from the leadoff spot earlier this month, and it seems he'll take it a step further and start sitting him more regularly over the final weeks of the season. Emilio Bonifacio will man center field and bat second in his absence Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Upton is out of the lineup Monday. Impact: The Braves have finally started to sit Upton roughly every fourth day, as his .207/.278/.329 slash line has dipped steadily over the past two weeks. Emilio Bonifacio seems to be a more trusted option in center field for manager Fredi Gonzalez than Jordan Schafer was when he was the backup option.(RotoWire, )
