Since Melvin Upton (Chesapeake) signed his mega-contract with the Braves, he has been, well, a major bust, to put it mildly. He has hit .198 with 61 RBIs in 267 games over 2 seasons in Atlanta. He was anxious to get going in 2015, hoping to break through his long slump, but his efforts have suffered a major setback. He will be sidelined through the end of Spring Training, and possibly into the regular season, due to inflammation in his foot. ESPN reports that he has been diagnosed with sesamoiditis, which, in laymans terms, is inflammation in the bone behind the ball of his foot.
Upton has three seasons left on his 5 yr, $75 million deal with Atlanta.
