David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that it's "unlikely" that B.J. Upton will be traded this offseason, as teams do not want to pay the remainder of his contract.
It's understandable, as Upton is owed $46.35 million over the next three years. This, coupled with the fact that he hit just .198/.279/.314 over the last two seasons, makes Upton an incredibly difficult candidate to move. Compounding matters is the fact that according to O'Brien, the Braves don't want to "give away [catcher Evan] Gattis to get rid of [Upton]." Dec 17 - 3:50 PM
