Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press doesn't expect Justin Upton to exercise his opt-out clause after the 2017 season.
As it stands, Upton will earn $88.5 million over the final four years of his deal. If this winter was any indication, that's more than he'd get on the open market. Even big-market squads like the Red Sox seem to be treating the luxury tax threshold like a hard salary cap. Upton matched a career-high with 31 homers in 2016 but only hit .246 while finishing among the league leaders in strikeouts (179 Ks in 570 at-bats). Trading Upton would be difficult given his exorbitant salary, so expect the 29-year-old to be in Detroit for the foreseeable future. Feb 6 - 11:18 AM
