Diamondbacks Unlikely To Trade Justin Upton

Although he has become one of baseball's most intriguing trade candidates early in the offseason, Justin Upton likely won't be going anywhere, tweets Joel Sherman of the New York Post. According to Sherman, the Diamondbacks are actively trying to fill holes on their roster that otherwise would have been filled in an Upton trade.

Nearly two weeks ago, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported that GM Kevin Towers was growing increasingly pessimistic that the Diamondbacks would find an acceptable offer for Upton. Since then, rumors concerning the young outfielder have been sparse; it appears the D'Backs have, at least for now, moved on to explore other ways of addressing their needs.
