Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Phillies met with free agent outfielder B.J. Upton earlier this week.
It evidently preceded his trip to Atlanta, where Upton visited Thursday. The 28-year-old was evidently impressed by both visits, proclaiming on Twitter that he is "really blown away by the love other cities are showing me right now." Upton figures to at some point pay a visit to the Nationals, as well, and the Rangers are also reportedly interested.
