VIDEO: New Braves Outfielder Justin Upton Hits Some Monster Home Runs

The days of the Braves not having power from the right side of the plate are long gone. Check out some of the biggest blasts of Upton's career.

Here are some of the bigger home runs of Justin Upton's career. Just sit back and enjoy.

This is the longest shot of his career, which was an estimated 480 feet back in 2011. As someone who has bought food from the Fatburger at Chase Field, this is an absolute blast.

Note to pitchers: don't throw him a hanging curveball.

When a pitcher has the kind of reaction Bumgarner has here, you know the hitter just destroyed one of his pitches.

Here's one more just for kicks and whatnot.

Upton has 80-power. That's extremely rare in today's game, and it's something that should make summer nights at Turner FIeld a lot of fun in the coming years. If he's able to stay healthy and work alongside Greg Walker, the sky is the limit for the newest member of Braves Country.
