Atlanta Braves trade Derek Lowe to Cleveland Indians, sources say – ESPN.

The Braves have to eat $10 million of his $15 million salary next year, but when you’re dealing with a Marianas Trench-level sunk cost like this, you take what you can get. The Braves get a minor league reliever, but that’s not really important. They also picked up the option on Eric Hinske and refused the option on Nate McLouth, but everyone knew McLouth was gone.
