Braves hold out Justin Upton
ATLANTA -- Braves left fielder Justin Upton is not starting against the Cubs as he recovers from a lower back muscle bruise.
Upton was hurt when he was hit by a pitch from Jeff Samardzija on Saturday night. He had to leave the game.
Ryan Doumit is filling in for Upton on Sunday, but Upton says his back is a little better and he hopes to play on Monday at San Francisco.
