Padres reportedly acquire Justin Upton

Well, this is fascinating. A day after finalizing the Matt Kemp trade, and on the day the Wil Myers trade is expected to be announced, the Padres have reportedly agreed to acquire Justin Upton as well.

And following the team’s trade of Jason Heyward (and Jordan Walden) for Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins, expectations are set high for the club’s return. There’s only one problem – teams think that the Braves got overpaid for Heyward, and don’t want to top that package for Upton. CBS’s Jon Heyman...
