Latest On Justin Upton, Diamondbacks

Justin Upton's no-trade list last year included the Yankees, Red Sox, Indians, and Cubs, but Diamondbacks General Manager Kevin Towers now says that the no-trade list is made up of four new teams, tweets Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic.  Towers said that it won't keep him from speaking with those four teams and he has even had talks with one of them already (Twitter link).

Towers also noted that the A's were on Chris Young's no-trade list but he ultimately agreed to go to Oakland last month, Piecoro tweets.  Earlier today it was reported that the D'Backs were in active discussions regarding Upton and the Red Sox are expected to join the fray.  The 25-year-old was hindered by hand issues in 2012 and posted a .280/.355/.430 batting line with 17 homers.
