The Braves have trade partners for Kenshin Kawakami

Ken Rosenthal reports that two Japanese clubs are willing to take Kenshin Kawakami off the Braves’ hands and pick up more than half of his remaining $6.67 million salary.

Kawakami is, at best, the Braves’ sixth starter right now. He has never lived up to his contract and no one in the organization appears to have any confidence in him.  As such, I’m assuming that he’s going to be in an NPB spring training camp ASAP.
