CelebNSports247.com reports that getting Dallas Keuchel to the Atlanta Braves took a minute.

The details of Dallas Keuchel contract is indeed for one year.
He’ll be paid $13MM between now and season’s end, which is a bit more than the $11.16MM he’d have made on a prorated deal worth the same amount as the $17.9MM qualifying offer.
He’ll jump right into the fray with Triple-A Gwinnett when he makes a start there on Saturday, reported by Jeff Passan of ESPN.
How were the Braves able to sign a new player?
To do this the Braves had to make room for Dallas Keuchel on their 40-man roster, so they transferred reliever Darren O’Day to the 60-day injured list. Read on. The reason why this was a simple move was that O’Day has been on the shelf since March 28 due to right forearm soreness.
Keuchel is represented by the Boras Corporation.
