Braves To Sign B.J. Upton
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [November 28 at 4:49pm CST]
4:49pm: It's a five-year, $75.25MM contract, Rosenthal reports (on Twitter).
Upton declined a qualifying offer from the Rays, which means the Rays are now eligible to obtain a top pick in the 2013 draft. The Braves will surrender their first round draft pick to sign Upton, though that selection won't go directly to Tampa Bay.
