Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton has the ability to block trades to four teams, the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs, reports Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton can block trades to four teams, major league sources told FOXSports.com: the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs.

Rosenthal and Morosi add that players tend to include high-revenue teams on their no-trade clause list, "thinking that those organizations are better positioned to offer financial inducements in an effort to convince the player to waive the clause."

The Diamondbacks have said they’re willing to listen to offers for Upton. The 24-year-old has been tied to several teams, including the Pittsburgh Pirates and Texas Rangers.

The Pirates are said to be one of Upton’s most "serious suitors," and it was reported this weekend that Pittsburgh would be willing to include outfielder Starling Marte in a trade for Upton.
