Report: Three more teams enter trade market for Justin Upton
Upton batted .270 with 29 home runs and 102 RBI in 154 games last season for the Braves, who had a 79-83 record and finished tied for in second place in the National League East.
Moving Upton, a two-time All-Star, would continue the shuffle in the Braves outfield after the team traded Jason Heyward to the St. Louis Cardinals and acquired Nick Markakis in free agency, signing him to a four-year, $44 million contract this week.
Upton, 27, is a career .274 hitter with 164 home runs and 535 RBI in seven MLB major league seasons with the Braves and Arizona Diamondbacks, who selected him first overall in the 2005 MLB Draft.
