Kenshin Kawakami started a triple-A game against the Charlotte Knights on the 22nd and gave up 4 runs over 5.2 innings of work.  He was not involved in the final decision.  Final line: 87-61 NP-S, 22 BF, 5.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 9 SO, 2 HR.

Hiroki Kuroda's next start was moved from the 24th to the 25th.  Seems Torre wants to give the start on the 24th to Ted Lilly so that the team can throw two lefties against the Rockies.
