Report: Justin Upton “90 percent” likely to stay with Diamondbacks
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.
Upton is coming off a 2012 season where he hit .280 with 67 RBIs and 17 home runs.
