NASHVILLE Seattle was one of the suitors when Justin Upton was available at the 2010 winter meetings, and it appears the Mariners interest has not waned.
The D-backs and Mariners met Monday night, sources with knowledge of the D-backs said, with Upton the major piece in discussion.
Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik has made it clear that ace right-hander Felix Hernandez...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Arizona Diamondbacks, Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers worked on a potential three-team trade throughout most of the day Wednesday. However, a major league source with direct knowledge of the talks told The Sports Xchange that a deal is unlikely to get done before the Winter Meetings end Thursday morning at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Resort. "...
The Seattle Mariners, Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians
have all shown “active interest” in Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin

We have a new, crazy rumor in relation to Justin Upton. The Phillies and Diamondbacks are reportedly discussing a swap that would send Upton to the Phillies for oft-traded starting pitcher Cliff Lee (and likely, a giant pile of cash as well). The prevailing logic is that the Diamondbacks would then move Lee to another team in exchange for the shortstop they desire. Other sources...
NASHVILLE Kevin Towers may have started a trend when he united Oakland and Florida in the three-team trade Oct. 20 that brought Heath Bell to the Diamondbacks, got cash relief for the Marlins and sent Chris Young to the As.
Multi is the new normal.
How many trade balls are in the air?
Right now? Towers said late Tuesday afternoon.
Probably more than I have hands. But I have...
Much of the offseason trade speculation involving the Arizona Diamondbacks has centered on right fielder Justin Upton.
But sources told FOXSports.com late Monday that the team has had at least as much trade dialogue in recent days about outfielder Jason Kubel.
Kubel spent his entire career in the American League until signing with the Diamondbacks before this season, and he would...
The Texas Rangers' GM Jon Daniels seems to be the "driving force" behind the potential four-team blockbuster that was first rumored yesterday. It would appear, the Rangers, the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Cleveland Indians, and the Seattle Mariners are the four teams involved in talks. A deal like this would be a difficult one to pull off, but because of Seattle&...
Update, 4:59 pm: D’Backs beat reporter Nick Piecoro chimed in just after the initial wave and reports that the trade talks are “off base.”
According to a tweet Pedro Gomez of ESPN, the Phillies and Diamondbacks are discussing a Justin Upton for Cliff Lee swap. However, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports writes Arizona is not actively seeking this deal...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. Justin Upton might have been the most discussed Diamondback on the internet and in the winding Opryland hotel hallways as the winter meetings officially opened Monday, but he was not the most popular D-back in trade discussions, general manager Kevin Towers said.
Towers would notto go there. Trevor Bauer? Gerardo Parra? It is not fair to speculate, and...
Josh Hamilton, Zack Greinke, and Justin Upton are three pieces of three monster deals that could be on verge of either getting done at any moment, or fall apart at the last minute.
That’s all fine and dandy, but there are plenty of other players, serviceable players that are available that no one talks about.
Look at Randy Choate for example. According to Jon Morosi’s...
8 a.m. ET: Day 3 of the MLB winter meetings were a little slower than Day 2, especially in Boston, but that just means we could be seeing a busier Day 5.
Already in the works is a four-team trade that would send Justin Upton to the Rangers — meaning Texas would not re-sign their star outfielder Josh Hamilton — according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. The fourth team seems to...
With no baseball action to distract us from the countless rumors circling the internet, the MLB winter meetings are like the trade deadline on steroids. It’s just baseball’s best and brightest minds talking shop all day long and us baseball nerds fanatics just soak it all in. Of course, every move that is made, whether it’s major or minor, has an impact on the fantasy universe...
