Justin Irvin Upton (born August 25, 1987) is an American professional baseball outfielder for the San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball (MLB). Previously, he played in the MLB for the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2007 to 2012 and Atlanta Braves in 2013 and 2014 while a teammate of brother Melvin Upton.
Upton was selected first overall by the Diamondbacks in the 2005 MLB Draft out of high school. He is considered a five-tool player because of his immense talent at the plate and his athleticism translates well in the basepaths and the outfield. Justin and his older brother, Melvin, are the only brothers in Major League Baseball to ever be selected in the number one and two slots of any first round draft.
