    Sources: Upton rejected trade to M's

    Sources: Upton rejected trade to M's

    Updated Jan 10, 2013 6:50 PM ET


    Justin Upton is still a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks, but not for a lack of effort by the D-Backs in trying to move him.

    The Diamondbacks were in agreement on a trade that would have sent Upton to the Seattle Mariners, but the two-time All-Star rejected the proposed deal, major-league sources say.

    The Mariners are one of four clubs on Uptonís no-trade list, according to sources. At least two other teams, the Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves, also are pursuing him.

    A rejection of the Mariners could be an attempt by Upton to leverage the Diamondbacks into sending him to a more preferred destination. The D-Backs, meanwhile, could be telling him that Seattle is his only option if he wants to leave Arizona, and for that reason itís always possible that a deal could revive.

    Just awful. Finally receive a big bat and would immediately boost our lineup and power and its voided. Unbelievable.

    Man, that is devastating.

    Hopefully they won't quit trying.

    Devastating. Crushing. Frustrating.

    Hopefully we can sit down with him and maybe offer him a nice fat extension to convince him to come aboard.

    Wonder who we were giving up.

    I'm not Upton's biggest fan either, but this is a kick to the nuts.
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    i was thinking about that but... not GMZ's style to pay extra. i think uptons got his heart set on going elsewhere, it'd be unprecedented as far as i can remember of someone rejecting a trade initially and finding a way to push it through

    now we can move on from upton IMO.

    well hawks won a road playoff game, reports are that sonics are coming back, it lessens the blow a little.

    Key point of this is that Upton can't pick where he goes. If Arizona says its the Ms or us, then he has to mAke that choice. He only has a choice when the Dbacks give it to him.
