Upton injures left shoulder

D-backs outfielder Justin Upton left Sundays’ game after the top of the 10th inning with an aggravated left shoulder.

Upton swung and missed at a 1-1 offering from Padres closer Heath Bell and winced. After being looked at by a trainer and manager A.J. Hinch, Upton stayed in and swung at the next pitch to strikeout.

Upton was then replaced by Gerardo Parra in right in the bottom of the 10th.

Losing Upton would be a huge blow to the D-backs. The 21-year-old was recently named the NL Player of the Month for May.
