Report: If they fall out of contention, Diamondbacks would trade Justin Upton

Major league sources tell Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FoxSports.com that if the Arizona Diamondbacks fall out of contention for a playoff spot, they would consider offers for rightfielder Justin Upton.

Rosenthal writes: "A trade of Upton would become realistic only if the D-Backs became outright sellers, which is hardly certain given the unsettled state of the NL West."

The D-Backs entered Friday night’s game seven games out of first place in the NL West and 5 1/2 games back in the wild-card race.

Rosenthal's and Morosi's sources say that shortstop Stephen Drew and third baseman Ryan Roberts could also be moved.

Upton was hitting .266 with seven homers and 34 RBI entering Friday's game. He is signed through the 2015 season.
