Whatever your opinion of Melvin Upton Jr., his injury that's opening the door to center field shouldn't be welcomed with gladness.

 

Upton has been sidelined for all of Spring Training with inflammation in a bone behind the ball of his left foot. He will miss all of April and could miss most of May, or he may not even return until June.

It's been quite a start to the college baseball season for the Augusta area.

 

USC Aiken entered as a nationally ranked team in Division II with some players getting solid draft attention. Georgia Regents has faced some tough competition and is showing signs of program improvement, most recently facing No. 1 Tampa at home. Clemson faced Maine over a three-game series at Lake Olmstead Stadium after the Tigers' home field was unplayable because of the weather.

The AJC's David O' Brien came through in the clutch with the first video of Melvin Upton Jr. this spring. Unfortunately, there's not much to see.

 

Based on the video of Upton's first spring cuts in the cage, the swing is basically the same one that he finished with in 2014. The stance remains open, the hands are away from the body and movement abounds throughout load and fire. He continues to leave his lower half in the box and isn't fully clearing.
