Ex-Rays player Upton selling Davis Islands home

Former Tampa Bay Rays outfielder, who left the team for the Atlanta Braves, is now cutting more ties to the area.
B.J. Upton has listed his Davis Islands Mediterranean-style home for $1.6 million, according to Realtor.com.
The home, built in 2003, has five bedrooms and five baths. Among the amenities are a custom wine cellar, a media room and a gourmet kitchen. There’s a resort-style pool with a spa, a poolside kitchen and a tiki wet bar.
Upton paid $1.437 million for the Mediterranean-style home in early 2011.
The two-story residence boasts a wrought-iron staircase in the foyer, vaulted ceilings and wood flooring throughout.
Upton, who signed with a five-year, $75.25 million contract with the Braves, has had a disappointing season, batting .183 and hitting only eight home runs.
