The Astros acquired outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Angels on Thursday, a source told ESPN.
A source said that minor league pitcher Grayson Long will be going to Detroit in the trade. Long, a former third-round pick, went 8-6 with a 2.52 ERA in 23 starts with the Angels’ Double-A Mobile farm club this season.
It’s uncertain if any other players will be going to Detroit in the deal.
Upton, 30, is hitting .279 with 28 homers and 94 RBIs this season. He’s a four-time All-Star in 11 seasons with Arizona, San Diego and Detroit.
Upton signed a six-year, $132 million contract with Detroit in January 2016. He’s owed $88 million over the next four seasons but has the option to opt out of the deal in November.
