Justin Upton: On The Move To Atlanta

Rotowire.com
Update: The Diamondbacks traded Upton to the Braves on Thursday, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports. Along with Upton, Chris Johnson was sent to Atlanta in exchange for Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, Nick Ahmed, Zeke Spruill, and Brandon Drury.

Recommendation: There had been rumblings of an Upton trade for most of the winter, but it appears the Diamondbacks finally found a trade they liked. It remains to be seen if Upton will play left or right field with Jason Heyward also on the roster, but either way he will line up alongside brother B.J. nearly every day. While Upton will still likely be hitting third in a vaunted lineup, it should be noted that he owns just a career .731 OPS outside of his former park, Chase Field. However, a change of scenery could be just what he needs to get back on track following what was only an average 2012 campaign.
