Per Jon Morosi: This has been the story of Justin Upton dating back to the Trade Deadline.
Justin Upton is looking to get more money in free agency and he showed it this season to back that up. This season, Justin Upton had a career year as he hit 35 HR’s, 109 RBI’s and a slash line of .273/.361/.901.
Justin Upton currently has 4-years, $88 million dollars left on his current deal that he signed back with the Tigers but he is looking to cash-in this offseason and hopefully re-join the Angels where he was quoted on saying he loved playing for. It is sounding like Justin Upton will go wherever the money will take him.
(Update: Per Jon Morosi: Justin Upton will have 3-days following the World Series to decide if he will opt out of his contract).
