“Upton is looking to make a decision this week, with both the Braves (who brought in former manager Bobby Cox to impress during his visit) and Phillies considering him their top choice.”
An Upton signing is expected to start a domino effect among free agent centerfielders. Upton, 28, hit .246 with 28 homeruns, 78 RBI and 31 stolen bases. He is a career .255 hitter with .336 on base percentage. He is widely considered as the Phillies top free agent target.
