Justin Upton Rumors: Mariners, Rangers, Indians Show “Active Interest”

The Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians have all shown “active interest” in Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

It was later reported by Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that the Atlanta Braves, Mariners and Indians were all collecting background information and character assessments on Upton to ensure he would be a fit on their teams.

The Mariners have made it clear that they’re searching for offense this winter, both through the free agent and trade markets. The Diamondbacks reportedly want pitching and/or a shortstop, and Seattle has multiple young arms to go with shortstop prospect Nick Franklin.

Texas has a pair of shortstops in Jurickson Profar and Elvis Andrus, but they’ve said they’re not inclined to trade either player. The Indians, meanwhile, have reportedly been willing to listen to offers for shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera.
