Justin Upton has an opt-out clause in his contract at the end of the season, but remains undecided about his future with the Detroit Tigers.
Upton is under contract for four more seasons under the six-year, $132.75 million deal he signed with the Tigers as a free agent two years ago. He has a clause that allows him to opt out of the deal and become a free agent this offseason only.
"I can't make a decision on that right now, so that doesn't affect me right now," Upton said. "It's always nice to have options, but I think it's more interesting to you guys than it is to me. I would feel like I was lying to you guys if I gave you a realistic answer right now, because I haven't really even thought about it.
"I'll get home and spend time with my family and the playoffs will be going on and when it comes around to it, probably a week or two beforehand, at that point I'll start having conversations with my agent and my family. But I can't be more honest with you right now: I'm not worried about it. It's so far away, a couple months."
