Justin Upton's No-Trade List Doesn't Include Mariners After All

A few days ago, it was reported that the Seattle Mariners were showing interest in outfielder Justin Upton. Shortly thereafter, it was noted that the Mariners are actually on Upton's limited no-trade list. However, in an interesting twist, the agency that represents Upton has gone on record as pointing out that this isn't true - that the Mariners aren't on the list after all.

Being included on a no-trade list isn't the end all or be all of anything, as no-trade clauses can be waived by the player. What makes this interesting is the reasoning behind the announcement by Reynolds Sports. There has been broad speculation that the agency made this announcement for a reason, as agencies don't usually go out of their way to address rumors regarding their clients.

Whatever the case, while Justin Upton does have a limited no-trade list, the Mariners aren't on it. Rumors continue to swirl.
