Braves sign B.J. Upton - 5 Years, $75.25 Million

Former Rays outfielder B.J. Upton can thank Frank Wren for making him a wealthy man.


Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports the terms of B.J. Upton's contract with the Braves: 5 years, $75.25 million.

Not as much as I'd hoped, but this does serve to depress the market for the remaining outfielders a bit, and also hints that maaaaaaybe the Phillies weren't as gung-ho for Upton's services as we may have been led to believe...
