In a Thursday morning shocker, the Arizona Diamondbacks traded outfielder Justin Upton and 3B Chris Johnson to the Atlanta Braves for 3B Martin Prado, SP Randall Delgado, and three minor leaguers.
Analysis: Well isn't that nice what with the Upton brothers now reunited in Atlanta. It is amazing to see the Diamondbacks give up on such a promising young power hitting outfielder in Justin Upton who hit 31 home runs just two years ago at 23. After falling to only 17 home runs in 2012 with some questionable attitude, the D-Backs seemed ready to move with a trade which they completed Thursday. Upton goes from one of the best hitting ballparks in the baseball to a neutral one in Atlanta which could take a home run or two away but overall I am still very bullish on his potential as a future superstar. A thumb injury was the main culprit in Upton struggling with his power last season and once September rolled around he was back to his old self once the thumb improved. Don't hesitate to give Upton another chance this spring in your draft as the talent eventually will take off soon.
