According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Braves are "waiting to hear" back from the Diamondbacks about their trade offer for outfielder Justin Upton.

ESPN's Buster Olney heard from sources on Wednesday afternoon that the offer from the Braves was "strong." But the D'Backs are also in talks with the Orioles about Jason Kubel, so this all could take a little while to fully shake out. Upton, 25, hit .280/.355/.430 with 17 homers, 18 steals and 67 RBI in 150 games last year for Arizona. He would be joining his brother B.J. in Atlanta.
