Over the summer and entering the offseason, it appeared the
Arizona Diamondbacks would be trading outfielder Justin Upton. However, rumors
cooled as teams were reportedly unable or unwilling to reach Arizona’s asking
price. Now, following the Diamondbacks’ signing of outfielder Cody Ross, the
team is “very much open” to talking about trading Upton with interested clubs,
according to Buster Olney of ESPN.
Arizona very much open again to talking about trading Justin Upton w/other teams, and not surprisingly, their specific demands have changed.
