All-Star Justin Upton on the move to the Angels

All-Star Justin Upton on the move to the Angels”

He's a four-time All-Star in 11 seasons with Arizona, Atlanta, San Diego and Detroit.

Adding Upton to the lineup should be a big boost for the surging Angels, who are 18-10 in August and can pair him with a healthy Mike Trout in the middle of the lineup.

Thursday is the final day that Major League Baseball teams can complete waiver trades and have the players involved available to play in the postseason.

Long, a third-round draft pick out of Texas A&M in 2015, has spent most of this season with the Mobile BayBears, the Angels' Double-A affiliate in Alabama.

The 30-year-old Upton is having a strong season for the struggling Tigers, batting.279 with 28 homers and 94 RBIs.

While this is mostly a salary dump for the rebuilding Tigers, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN says they'll be getting pitcher Grayson Long from the Angels and potentially more. The caveat: Upton has the ability to opt out of his contract after this season.

However, Los Angeles is likely mostly thinking about the present: They're 11 games behind the Astros in the AL West but are sitting just one game back behind the Twins for the second wild card spot in the AL. Upton has made it clear he wants to win, and the Tigers appear headed toward a rebuild.

The Angels made this trade just before the September 1st deadline so should the Angels make their way into the playoffs Upton will be eligible to play.

Upton, who started his career with the Diamondbacks, can opt out of his deal after the season, but reports indicate he has not guaranteed that he won't opt out. Maybin is slashing.235/.333/.351 with six home runs.
