PHOENIX -- The general managers' meetings ended Friday as they began, with Diamondbacks big name and big bopper Justin Upton available but unmoved.
D-backs GM Kevin Towers has yet to find a deal he cannot refuse, although that does not mean seeds were not sown in Indians Wells, Calif.
Arizona presidentCEO Derrick Hall said it is too early to set odds on Upton returning next season, but he does feel Upton is not fazed by the market speculation.
The great thing about Justin is, he has been through this now for a couple of years and he really expects it, Hall said at the D-backs celebrity golf tournament at Whirlwind Golf Club on Friday to raise money for the military.
If nothing happens and he is still in a Diamondback uniform, he is going to play hard and were all going to be fine, Hall said. He knows its part of the game. He is so mature now compared to when he first entered the league. If this had happened back then, maybe he would react differently, but he handles it so well...
