Tom Glavine Released by Braves

Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports is Braves-release-legendary-P-Glavine" target="_blank">reporting that the Atlanta Braves have released Tom Glavine.

The Braves reportedly told Glavine the cause was his lack of velocity.  According to Rosenthal's report "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." 

Glavine stated that he wishes to continue pitching. 

Where the veteran left hand might catch on remains open to speculation.  One could speculate teams like the White Sox, Astros, or even his old team the Mets might be interested.

Glavine has not pitched for the Braves in 2009.  He is currently recovering from elbow and shoulder surgeries.
