1-Justin Upton

Any time Upton faces the D-backs he is a guy to watch. In some ways, he was the face of the franchise for six seasons, a #1 overall pick who was a part of two NL West Championship teams. In 111 plate appearances against his old club, Upton is hitting .326 with a .432 on-base percentage and seven home runs. Named an All-Star for the third time in his career, Upton will be a free agent at the end of this season. He has 25 home runs and 74 RBI’s while batting .254.
