Upton picks Atlanta

Arizona has traded outfielder Justin Upton to the Atlanta Braves in a seven-player deal that sends former All-Star infielder Martin Prado to the Diamondbacks. The Braves also get third baseman Chris Johnson. Atlanta is giving up four minor leaguers in the deal, top pitching prospect Randall Delgado, right-hander Zeke Spruill, shortstop Nick Ahmed and first baseman Brandon Drury. Upton, who has five-plus major league seasons but still is just 25 years old, will join older brother B.J. Upton, who recently signed a free-agent contract with Atlanta. The younger Upton, who has three years and $38.5 million left on his contract, had been the subject of trade speculation throughout the offseason and vetoed a trade to the Seattle Mariners. – Associated Press
