Breaking Down the Moving Pieces in the Justin Upton Deal

This was Justin Upton's last D-Backs bubble.

In one of the more drawn-out trade sagas in recent years, Justin Upton's exit from the Arizona Diamondbacks was finally agreed this week. Incidentally, he will be joining his brother B.J. with the Atlanta Braves.

The final deal sent Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson to Atlanta for third baseman/left fielder Martin Prado, starting pitcher Randall Delgado, and three prospects: shortstop Nick Ahmed, pitcher Zeke Spruill and third baseman Brandon Drury (via MLB).
