    Braves release Glavine

    Tom Glavine is don in Atlanta


    According to major-league sources, the Braves released Glavine on Wednesday, just a day after the two-time Cy Young Award winner threw six scoreless innings in his latest rehab start.
    Glavine was to be paid $1 million for his first day on the active roster, $1.25 million for 30 days on the roster and another $1.25 million for 90 days on the roster, bringing the total possible value of the deal to $4.5 million.
    The Braves told Glavine that he was being released because his velocity is down, one source said. However, Glavine was throwing only 76-78 miles per hour in spring training and in recent starts had increased that to 83-86 miles per hour.
    "I don't know what else I can do," Glavine said after Tuesday night's game, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Physically I felt good and I feel like I'm ready.
    "I'd love to get to Atlanta and help the team. I'll go (to Turner Field) tomorrow and prepare to pitch on Sunday, wherever that is."
    Glavine, who returned to Atlanta on a one-year deal, underwent minor elbow and shoulder surgeries during the offseason. He did not appear in a single game for the Braves this season.
    A really bad way of handling this by the Braves IMO.

    Re: Braves release Glavine

    Obviously they decided he wasn't worth the money. There are only 2 ways to handle this. Bring him up and pay him... Or release him. They chose the latter.

    Had to make room for Tommy Hanson. This kid looks like a stud. 90 K's in 66.1 IP in AAA so far this year.
