It's a sad day for Yankee fans like myself.
Justin Upton has been traded... to Atlanta.
The Braves will reportedly send Martin Prado, prospects Nick Ahmed and Brandon Drury, and young right-handers Randall Delgado and Zeke Spruill. Along with Upton, the Diamondbacks will send third baseman Chris Johnson to Atlanta.
I was really hoping Cashman had a deal in the works, and the news was going to come out of nowhere for us. It turns out that the Yankees never really had much interest in dealing for Upton, which is a real shame. Maybe there's something else being talked about, but this is not news I wanted to wake up to.
