« Manny Ramirez Rumors: Tuesday | Main | Padres Sign Prior, Burke »

Braves Sign Kenshin Kawakami

4:27pm: O'Brien says now it's about $23MM over three years.

2:02pm: David O'Brien says Kawakami gets three years, $25MM.

8:38am: A news conference is scheduled for today, so it's safe to assume pitcher Kenshin Kawakami passed his physical and is a Brave.  We'll add the terms of the three-year deal once they become available.  The Japanese paper Sponichi believes it's worth $24MM, though it was written in uncertain terms according to Patrick Newman.

If the Braves are able to sign Derek Lowe, they'll have a rotation of Lowe, Javier Vazquez, Kawakami, Jair Jurrjens, and Jorge Campillo (with Tommy Hanson knocking on the door and Tim Hudson in the second half).
