Earlier today, we learned that the budget-conscious Yankees aren't in on Justin Upton at present. Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports proposed a scenario in which the Yanks send Curtis Granderson to the Mariners and then parlay that haul into Upton, but it doesn't look like Brian Cashman & Co. are going to join the fray for the Diamondbacks star. We'll keep track of the latest on Upton here..
- D'Backs GM Kevin Towers told Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com that he won't be giving the outfielder away for cheap and he's not in a rush to move him. Towers also said owner Ken Kendrick is "fine" with them keeping all their outfielders. Kendrick seemed to have a strong preference towards moving Upton when he spoke with Heyman earlier this offseason, but he'll be leaving the call up to Towers.
