The Atlanta Braves acquired outfielder Justin Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson from the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday in a trade that sent veteran utility man Martin Prado and starting pitcher Randall Delgado to Arizona.
Also in the deal Arizona received three prospects from Atlanta: pitcher Zeke Spruill, shortstop Nick Ahmed and first baseman Brandon Drury.
