Upton on the way ...



UptonThe Devil Rays have decided to call up top infield prospect B.J. Upton from Triple-A Durham and he is expected to join them Monday night. Upton is expected to take over at third base.

The Rays had planned on calling him up soon anyway, and the broken hand sustained by Ty Wigginton on Saturday may have expedited the situation.

Upton hit .269 in 106 games at Durham with eight homers and 41 RBIs, along with a league-high 46 stolen bases.
