The Chicago Cubs are no longer talking to the Arizona Diamondbacks about star outfielder Justin Upton.
The two teams were engaged in talks to see if they were a match to send Upton to Chicago. But the D’Backs reportedly wanted shortstop Starlin Castro in return for Upton.
But the team is not willing to trade their young shortstop. Castro is the best young talent on the Cubs, as they look towards rebuilding the team.
The Diamondbacks will continue to look for a trading partner for Upton, as he has been rumored to be traded for months. If they can find a partner within the next month, he will be dealt by spring training.
He previously rejected a trade a couple of days ago to the Seattle Mariners.
