Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Justin Upton (quad) probably won't play Wednesday either.

Advice: Upton was a late scratch Monday and is being held out again Tuesday due to tightness in his right quad. Ausmus said the team is just trying to be cautious. Upton, signed to a six-year, $132.75 million free agent contract this winter, is batting just .223/.270/.319 with 66 strikeouts over his first 178 plate appearances for Detroit.

Justin Upton (quad) is out of the Tigers' lineup again Tuesday against the Phillies.

Advice: The struggling Upton was a late scratch Monday due to right quad tightness and he's apparently not quite right yet. Mike Aviles will make the start in left field.

Justin Upton was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Phillies due to right quad tightness.

Advice: Steven Moya will start in his place in left field and bat sixth against righty Vince Velasquez. Upton is already off to a miserable start at the plate (.223 with a .589 OPS and 66 strikeouts in 44 games), so an injury isn't going to help matters.

Justin Upton is not in the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

Advice: Steven Moya will get a start in left field against the Rays' Chris Archer. Upton is batting .318/.400/.409 over his last six games but was hitless Saturday. Jose Iglesias is also getting a breather, as Andrew Romine is handling shortstop.
