Diamondbacks | Justin Upton could still be dealt

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Justin Upton could still be traded now that the team has a surplus of outfielders. The Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners and Atlanta Braves have shown interest in trading for him, according to major league sources. OF Jason Kubel carries less trade value than Upton since he's under club control for only one more season. The D-backs, however, are sending mixed signals. The Mariners are desperate to add a slugger, and they've checked in on just about every available hitter this winter, and Upton may be their most realistic pursuit. Arizona might be more receptive to taking some of the Mariners' young pitching after they dealt SP Trevor Bauer. However, Seattle is on Upton's four-team no-trade list, and he's unlikely to approve a deal to go to the Mariners.
