Justin Upton hits 200th career home run [VIDEO]

After a poor start to the 2016 season, Justin Upton is looking to have a strong second half of the season for the Tigers and help lead them to the playoffs.

On Monday night in the second inning of the Tigers game against the Minnesota Twins, Upton launched his 10th home run of the season to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead over the Twins. The home run was the first for Upton since July 7th, and was also Upton’s 200th of his career.

Upton is now the 10th active player to reach 200 home runs by their age-28 season.

Upton has average around 28 home runs per season the last three seasons so he will need an extremely strong second half to finish near that average this season. His career high for home runs in a season is 31 back in 2011 when he was a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
