B.J. Upton Not in Lineup for Rays in Series Opener With Red Sox

Apparently, the B.J. Upton saga in Tampa Bay isn’t over yet.

Upton was involved heated argument in the Rays’ dugout with third baseman Evan Longoria on Sunday when Longoria accused Upton of not hustling after a ball in the gap in center field in a game against the Diamondbacks.

After the game both players said that it was over with, but Rays manager Joe Maddon hinted on Sunday that benching the young outfielder could be an option.

Upton is hitting .223 with seven home runs this season for Tampa Bay.

Ben Zobrist is penciled in to play center for the Rays.
