BJ Upton Out Against Sox
BOSTON (AP) – B.J. Upton is not in Tampa Bay's starting lineup
again against the Boston Red Sox, but this time Rays manager Joe
Maddon says the absence is injury related.
Maddon says Upton is out of Wednesday night's lineup because of
a sore right quadriceps. Upton didn't want to talk about the injury
when he walked to the trainer's room before the game.
On Tuesday, Maddon said he didn't have the center fielder in the
starting lineup, but added it was unrelated to the dugout
confrontation Upton had with teammate Evan Longoria on Sunday.
