Report: Braves Get Justin Upton
By Spike Eskin
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Braves are one Upton away from an all-Upton outfield. Maybe if Jason Heyward gets injured they can place a call to Kate’s agent.
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Braves and Diamondbacks have agreed to a deal that would send outfielder Justin Upton to Atlanta, pending a physical. The MLB Network reports that the Diamondbacks will receive Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, Nick Ahmed, and Zeke Spruill in return.
The Braves signed B.J. Upton, Justin’s brother, to a five-year, $75 million deal in November.
The Phillies signed outfielder Delmon Young to a one-year, $750,000 contract earlier this week.
