Justin Upton and B.J. Upton accomplished a rare feat last season when they both cracked their 100th career home run on the same night. If they repeat any milestones going forward, it could be while both wear the same uniform. The Braves and Diamondbacks have agreed to a trade that will send Justin Upton to Atlanta, according to CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman. Justin Upton will now join his brother, B.J., who signed a five-year deal with the Braves earlier this offseason. Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports the Braves will receive Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson as part of the deal with Arizona, while dealing away third baseman Martin Prado, right-hander Randall Delgado, shortstop prospect Nick Ahmed and right-handed pitching prospect Zeke Spruill. Heyman adds that minor league first baseman Brandon Drury will also go from Atlanta to Arizona as part of the seven-player megadeal. This is a huge move for the Braves, who now feature arguably baseball’s most dynamic outfield. The Upton brothers join Jason Heyward, meaning there’s no shortage of speed, range and offensive ability lurking at Turner Field. Justin Upton, who at 25 is three years younger than B.J., is a two-time All-Star. He hit .280 with 17 home runs and 67 RBIs last season. In 2011, he had a career-high 31 home runs and 88 RBIs while finishing fourth in NL MVP voting.
