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