The Detroit Tigers reportedly reached a deal with free agent outfielder Justin Upton late Monday night.

Upton, who has quite a bit of pop in his bat, will be a nice addition to Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez.

Upton hit 26 home runs in 2015. Below are his three longest home runs from the 2015 campaign.

3. Upton hit a 422 foot home run off David Holmberg on August 10, 2015 in the fourth inning.
