ATLANTA (AP) -- Braves pitcher Tom Glavine threw in the outfield on Monday and says he felt better about his ailing left shoulder. But Glavine says he still isn't sure if he'll be able to extend his career.

The 43-year-old Glavine stopped throwing for two weeks after his shoulder began hurting during a minor league rehab start. He threw in the outfield before Sunday's game at Cincinnati. Then he attempted two sets of 15 throws from 70 feet before the opener of a three-game series against St. Louis at Turner Field.

Glavine says he hopes to throw off the mound before the end of a nine-day homestand. That's when he should know if he'll be able to pitch this season.
