Glavine’s Return To Braves Not Certain

FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal has heard from several major league sources that the Braves’ "tightening finances could lead to the departure of yet another Braves legend," Tom Glavine.

As Rosenthal writes, "the Braves, in greater need of another outfielder than another starting pitcher, might not be in position to add both.

The team is targeting Nick Swisher and Xavier Nady in trade talks, and has made contact with free agent Bobby Abreu.  Each of those guys will earn over $5MM this season.  Glavine is apparently looking for around $3MM in guaranteed money, which might not fit in the budget.
