Braves make of­fer to for­mer pitcher Glavine

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

AT­LANTA — The Braves made an of­fer to Tom Glavine, mov­ing quickly to lock up a deal that will al­low the left­hander to fin­ish his ca­reer in At­lanta.

Just two days af­ter meet­ing with Glavine’s agent in Phoenix, Braves gen­eral man­ager Frank Wren pro­posed a con­tract to the 41-year-old pitcher, who likely will com­mand some­where be­tween $8 mil­lion and $10 mil­lion for the 2008 sea­son.

The two sides seem to be mov­ing smoothly to­ward a deal that would al­low Glavine to re­turn to the Braves.

Glavine, a 300-game win­ner, turned down a $13 mil­lion op­tion to re­turn to the New York Mets for a sixth year.
