Upton missed 29 games and the Rays were 8-21 without him. He was leading the team with a .320 average at the time of his injury, as well as runs and doubles and was one of their hitters with runners in scoring position. The full lineup: Iwamura, 3b Crawford, lf Harris, ss Pena, 1b Young, rf Upton, cf Norton, dh Navarro, c Wilson, 2b
