Braves | Preparing strong package for Justin Upton
Wed, 23 Jan 2013 13:57:11 -0800
The Atlanta Braves are believed to be conjuring up a "strong package" in order to acquire Arizona Diamondbacks OF Justin Upton, and a move may be made relatively quickly. The D-backs are believed to be interested in OF Evan Gattis, although they have more of a need for a leadoff hitter. Atlanta has plenty of young pitching to get a deal done for Upton, and the Bravos are not on Upton's no-trade list. It's believed he'd be willing to join his brother, OF B.J. Upton, anyway.
