Report: D-Backs "open" to trading Upton
The Arizona Diamondbacks are once again interested in re-opening talks to trade two-time all-star Justin Upton, according to a tweet from ESPN's Buster Olney. The Seattle Mariners have been cited as a possible destination for Upton. The Diamondbacks, however, have changed their demans for a return for Upton after acquiring shortstop Didi Gregorius from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for Trevor Bauer last month.
Upton, still only 25, batted .284/.363/.481 with 48 and 155 RBI and 39 stolen bases over the last two seasons with the Diamondbacks.
