Justin Upton Traded To Braves

Posted By Sports Talk Florida On January 24, 2013 @ 10:33 AM In MLB | No Comments

All-Star outfielder Justin Upton has been traded from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the Atlanta Braves, reports CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. The deal is pending a physical, but is otherwise complete. [1]

The full trade is the Braves getting Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson. The D-Backs get third baseman/outfielder Martin Prado, starting pitcher Randall Delgado, minor-league shortstop Nick Ahmed and minor-league pitcher Zeke Spruill.

Upton, 25, hit .280/.355/.430 with 17 homers, 67 RBI, 107 runs and 18 stolen bases last season for the D-Backs. In 2011, he hit .289/.369/.529 with 31 homers, 88 RBI, 105 runs, 39 doubles and 21 stolen bases, leading the Diamondbacks to an unlikely NL West title and finishing fourth in NL MVP voting. He appeared headed for superstardom, but fell out of favor with Arizona brass at some point in 2012.
