The Arizona Diamondbacks will keep Justin Upton on the trading block, but one source with the team insists that the right fielder is "90% likely" to be with the team for spring training.

This, from a CBS Sports report that also states Upton would be open to a trade, even if it's to a team on the "no-trade" list in his contract. The Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers have been mentioned as possible destinations for Upton, but the Rangers seem unwilling to meet Arizona's demands.
