Reports are indicating that Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Jusin Upton is a potential trade target for the New York Mets. The move is considered a longshot, but Marc Carig of New York Newsday says that the thought has been discussed.

Upton recently rejected a trade that would have sent him to the Seattle Mariners.

The Atlanta Braves are also in the running for Upton, who many believe is the favorite to land the oufielder. If Atlanta could land Upton, he would be playing alongside his brother, B.J. Upton.
