Whoa, Justin Upton callup imminent?

Will Carrol wrote:Trusted sources tell me that the Mobile Bears have been instructed to have Justin Upton "ready to go." Since Upton is untouchable as Eliot Ness, I have to believe that Upton is on the verge of a callup. The Diamondbacks are likely to get as much production out of Upton as they are from anyone they could reasonably acquire, including Jermaine Dye. I'll leave it to Kevin to tell you why Upton's this special, but he is. One other factor that may play into this is that manager Brett Butler, who the organization says was a phenomenal influence on Upton, is unlikely to return to the team this season after suffering a mild stroke.

:-C I was hoping to stash him in the minors for another year.

anyone post some minor league #'s and any projections for Mr. Upton? Would he be a fulltime player with the Diamondbacks being in a playoff run?

Thanks guys...I usually just pull up the minor #'s from sportsline, but for some reason they are not there, so I appreciate it...where are you guys pulling these #'s?

Would you think he'd be a full time player? Byrnes, Young, and Upton?
