The Atlanta Braves have come to terms with B.J. Upton on a five-year contract worth around $75 million according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. This is big news for the Braves, who have made their biggest free-agent signing in terms of both impact and dollars in many years.

This also means that Michael Bourn is not coming back to Atlanta, as he is likely to command a similar contract on the free-agent market, and the Braves don't have the cash to sign him as well as Upton. Upton is a significantly different player than Bourn, though he may have more natural talent to work with.

This article takes a look at the biggest winners and losers of the Upton signing, which as of now ranks below only the Toronto Blue Jays/Miami Marlins blockbuster trade as the biggest move this offseason.
