Pirates still interested in Kawakami
The winter meetings may have ended but the Pirates are not done. There are still talks between the Bucs and the Braves for starter Kenshin Kawakami. The Baltimore Orioles are no longer interested in the right-hander.
It is uncertain how much money Atlanta would be willing to eat in the trade. Kawakami is due to earn $6.67 million.
Kawakami, 35, has a 8-22 record with a 4.32 ERA over the past two seasons.
