AJC: O’Brien: Expect B.J. Upton trade talks to be revisited

This is what I’m told about where it stands going forward: The Braves will try to trade Upton this offseason – personally, I think it’s just about a fait accompli that he’s gone before spring training – and that they might do it by including Minor in a package. In other words, they’d tell a team, you can have three years of contractual control of Minor before free agency, but you’re going to have to take B.J. Upton in the deal.
The Braves would surely have to take back a bad contract such as Jackson in such an exchange, but Atlanta would also probably ask that a decent prospect be included from the other team.

Report: The Braves and Cubs discussed a B.J. Upton, Edwin Jackson swap

Most importantly, Nightengale also says the deal “likely will be broached once again this winter. Stay tuned.”

In today’s column for USA TODAY, Bob Nightengale writes that the Braves and Cubs nearly pulled the trigger on a swap of B.J. Upton and Edwin Jackson at the non-waiver trade deadline, but it never materialized. The Braves would have had to throw in a significant amount of cash to even out the trade, which was ostensibly what halted the deal.

Upton is in the second year of a five-year, $75.25 [million] contract… Jackson, currently sidelined with a strained lat muscle in his right shoulder, is in the second year of a four-year, $52 million deal.

Cubs place struggling Edwin Jackson on the disabled list

Noooo! My HACKING MASS team!!!

After signing a four-year, $52 million contract with the Cubs last offseason Edwin Jackson struggled last season and has now been a mess this year, giving him a combined 14-32 record and 5.47 ERA in 57 starts for Chicago.

That includes leading the league in losses both seasons and leading the league in runs allowed this year. And since getting his ERA under 5.00 in early July he’s gone 1-6 with an 8.52 ERA in nine starts… Jackson failed to make it out of the third inning Wednesday, coughing up seven runs as his ERA ballooned above 6.00…

Jackson… [has] been placed on the disabled list with a strained lat muscle.
