by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com the Braves have had recent talks with the Athletics, Rangers and Mariners this offseason. However, the Padres appear to be the club most likely to land Upton at this point, per Bowman.

Report: Padres continue to talk to Braves about Justin Upton
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Padres continue to talk to the Braves about outfielder Justin Upton, according to Bleacher Report's Scott Miller.

Despite the fact that the Padres acquired both Matt Kemp and Wil Myers on Thursday, the team may not be done yet. It's unclear where Upton would fit into the team's plans, but he would be a clear upgrade over whoever the club is planning to start in center field. If the team were to acquire Upton, one of that trio would be pushed into action in center. While Kemp has experience at the position, he's not considered a strong defender. 

The 27-year-old Upton is coming off a season in which he hit .270/.342/.491 over 566 at-bats.

Schuerholz: Braves have discussed Justin Upton extension
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Braves president John Schuerholz told MLB Network Radio on Tuesday they have had internal discussions about a contract extension for outfielder Justin Upton.

"All things are possible," Schuerholz said. "That is not on the table at the moment, but we have discussed it internally."

Schuerholz added the Braves have also discussed trading Upton, but that is of little surprise since Upton has been mentioned heavily in trade rumors. The 27-year-old Upton will be a free agent after the 2015 season.
