B.J. Upton added an Atlanta Braves logo to his twitter photo late this afternoon, a move that would confirm numerous reports that the former Rays center fielder agreed to a contract with the Braves.

Ken Rosenthal of Fox reported the deal is for five-years, $75.25 million pending a physical.

The Rays had offered Upton a one-year, $13.3 million deal after the season, but Upton turned it down to pursue free agency.

The Phillies were believed to be very interested in Upton.
