Justin Upton LF/RF ATL Jan 24 '13

Braves acquired OF Justin Upton and 3B Chris Johnson from the D'Backs for 3B Martin Prado, RHP Randall Delgado, SS Nick Ahmed, RHP Zeke Spruill and 1B Brandon Drury.

Upton was dangled in trade talks for the past couple of years and the Diamondbacks finally decided to pull the trigger this winter. He will start in left field in Atlanta -- next to his brother B.J. in center and Jason Heyward in right. Upton, 25, has hit .284/.363/.481 with 48 home runs, 155 RBI and 39 stolen bases over the last two seasons. He boasts the upside of a perennial MVP candidate.
