Glavine back with Braves


February 20, 2009
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- Tom Glavine has returned to the Atlanta
Braves, completing a $1 million, one-year contract that includes
another $3.5 million in possible bonuses based on roster time.
The Braves announced the deal Friday morning after a final round
of talks with Glavine's agent. The left-hander is baseball's active
wins leader with 305.
Glavine, who turns 43 next month, was 2-4 with a 5.54 ERA in 13
starts last season, cut short by an elbow injury. He will join the
Braves in March after continuing rehab in Atlanta from an operation
that also cleaned up his shoulder.
