Arizona will now attempt to flip prospects to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for right-hander Rick Porcello, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Meanwhile, Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona is reporting that the Diamondbacks expect to work out a contract extension with newly-acquired third baseman Martin Prado.
Nightengale notes that the Braves would likely send Nick Ahmed, who they acquired in the Upton trade, and a pitching prospect to the Tigers in exchange for Porcello.

The Braves selected Ahmed in the second round of the 2011 MLB Draft. The 22-year-old spent the 2012 season with Atlanta's high-A affiliate, hitting .269/.337/.391 with 36 doubles, four triples and six home runs.
Magruder reports Arizona expects to reach an agreement on a multi-year extension with Prado. The 29-year-old is currently set to hit the free agent market after the season, and Magruder notes that the expectation of an extension was the only way a deal with the Braves would have been made.
