FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Diamondbacks "stand a better chance" of trading Justin Upton to the Braves than they do dealing Jason Kubel to the Orioles.

Rosenthal notes that it's "unclear whether others involved," but it sounds like Arizona likes Atlanta's offer for Upton better than they do Baltimore's for Kubel. ESPN's Buster Olney reported earlier that the Braves' offer for Upton was "strong," with David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution speculating that it's likely to be headlined by Julio Teheran. The D'Backs would like to trade either Upton or Kubel by Friday.
