Derek Lowe Rumors: Friday

7:45pm: Mark Bowman reports that the Braves are actually readying their first offer for Lowe, which they plan to make on Monday or Tuesday. More from Bowman here.

3:40pm: O'Brien has details on the Braves' five-hour meeting with Lowe and Boras.  He says the Braves' offer is expected today and they want Lowe badly.  It may require a four-year commitment.

As far as Kenshin Kawakami - the Braves are among the four finalists.  On the offensive side O'Brien suggests Adam Dunn or Xavier Nady could be targets.

9:26am: According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves met with Derek Lowe and Scott Boras for several hours yesterday.  O'Brien says the Braves' offer was unknown, implying that they did make an offer.

O'Brien also reiterated that Boras said the Mets' widely reported three-year, $36MM offer was never made and would've been far too low anyway.  O'Brien mentions the Phillies, Brewers, and Angels as other Lowe suitors, but Ken Rosenthal said those three clubs denied interest.  Brewers GM Doug Melvin said Tuesday in regard to Lowe: "We're not in on him."
