Justin Upton returns to Arizona in Braves uniform
Question of the Day
He did the same thing before the series opener against his former team, and the Diamondbacks had nothing but good things to say about their former star.
“He was a young ballplayer when he came up in 2007, we went to the playoffs that year and I’ve got nothing but good memories of him,” Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. “I respect J-Up and he knows that. We just moved forward and have to stay focused on tonight’s game. They’re a first-place team and that’s where we want to be.”
Though he hasn’t spent much time in Atlanta because of the Braves‘ road-heavy opening schedule, Upton has enjoyed the move so far. He’s been able to see a lot more of his brother and had a great start to the season, hitting six homers in his first seven games.
Strange as it may have been to enter the visiting clubhouse in Arizona for the first time, Upton was excited to be back in an area where he still has a home.
“I’m happy to be back here,” Upton said. “I played, obviously, the first few years of my career here. I’m just excited to be back. It’s a great opportunity to play against old teammates, get a chance to sleep in my own bed, which is fun, and just be back here in the Valley. I’d just like to thank the D-backs for the opportunity to start my career here.”
