INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- Once again, the Arizona Diamondbacks are trying to trade right fielder Justin Upton. Maybe the third time will be a charm. The Diamondbacks discussed moving Upton at the 2010 general managers' meetings and also before the July 31 non-waiver deadline last season. Ken Kendrick, the team's managing general partner, told a Phoenix radio station in October that Upton was "highly likely" to return. Major-league sources, however, say the team is again engaged in active discussions about Upton, and one estimates the chances of him playing elsewhere next season are "80-20." The Diamondbacks need a shortstop, and Upton possibly could bring them a player such as the Rangers' Elvis Andrus. Upton, 25, is signed for 9.75 million next season, 14.25 million in 2014 and 14.5 million in 2015. His no-trade list last season consisted of four teams: the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs. The list has since changed, a source said. Without Upton and Chris Young, whom the Diamondbacks traded last month to the Oakland Athletics the team would still be fairly deep in outfielders. Gerardo Parra, Jason Kubel and Adam Eaton could form the D-Backs' outfield next season, with A.J. Pollock in reserve.
