3 Skills B.J. Upton Brings to the Atlanta Braves Lineup

It is being reported by multiple sources including ESPN's Jerry Crasnick via his Twitter page, that free agent outfielder B.J. Upton has signed a five-year deal with the Atlanta Braves.

Reportedly the deal is for five years and $75.25 million, the richest contract ever handed out by the Atlanta Braves, carrying a $15.05 million average annual value.
