The Arizona Diamondbacks have officially traded Justin Upton to the Atlanta Braves in a complicated deal. The trade has Upton and Chris Johnson going to the Braves. In return, the Diamondbacks are getting Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, Brandon Drury, Nick Ahmed and Zeke Spruill.
In Atlanta, Justin Upton will join his brother BJ Upton in the outfield. Add in Jason Heyward and the Braves suddenly may have the best outfield in all of baseball.
As for the D’Backs, this is a difficult trade to swallow. Yes, they got a lot of players in return. But Justin Upton is a player with superstar potential. If he explodes, they will look foolish.
