Braves make offer to former pitcher Glavine
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.
