Justin Upton-OF- Diamondbacks

The Arizona Republic reports that Justin Upton (oblique) "almost certainly won't be in the lineup" Thursday and could be headed to the disabled list.

Upton was scratched from the lineup Wednesday with a strained oblique. With Eric Byrnes already on the shelf, Emilio Bonifacio started in right field for Upton. Despite their suddenly depleted outfield, the newspaper notes that the Diamondbacks "have no plans to pursue" Barry Bonds.

Manager Bob Melvin said Saturday he expects Justin Upton to return immediately after the All-Star break.

Upton has been sidelined since straining his left oblique during batting practice Wednesday. "Once we get these next three days off, we get him to a workout on Thursday, he should be a full go and hopefully starting the next day," Melvin said. Alex Romero has been getting the nod in right field.

Justin Upton (abdomen) says he's not sure he'll be able to return when play resumes on Friday.

"At this point, we're still working on it. We'll see what four days can do and evaluate then," Upton said. Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin said over the weekend that he expected Upton back on Friday.

The East Valley Tribune reports that Justin Upton (oblique) is a "strong candidate" for the disabled list.

Upton hasn't played since July 8 due the soreness in his side. He had hoped it would improve over the All-Star break, but clearly he's still bothered.
