The Atlanta Braves appear to be sweetening the pot when it comes to their reported trade shopping of outfielder Justin Upton.
Disregarding a typo in regards to his first name, Bob Nightengale of USA Today is reporting that the Braves are packaging third baseman Chris Johnson with Upton in their current trade talks at the Major League Baseball winter meetings:
