ATLANTA (AP) - B.J. Upton is excited about the possibility of a family reunion in the Braves' outfield.
He signed a five-year, $75.25 million contract with Atlanta in November. After hearing the Braves may be pursuing a trade with Arizona for his younger brother, Justin Upton, B.J. said on his Twitter account: "Please don't tease me like this... Would be a dream come true if it happens."
Braves general manager Frank Wren said Wednesday the team has payroll flexibility to make another move. Wren would not say if the team is pursuing Justin Upton.
The Upton brothers and right fielder Jason Heyward would give the Braves one of baseball's best outfields.
Martin Prado is expected to move from left field to third base to replace Chipper Jones, who has retired.
