Braves Release Tom Glavine

5:48pm: David Lennon of Newsday tweets that the Mets are not considering bringing Glavine back.  Also, word via radio reports is that Tommy Hanson will come up to start Saturday.  That's Kris Medlen's turn, but he's not in the Nate McLouth deal.

4:42pm: According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports the Braves have released Tom Glavine. Glavine signed an incentive-laden deal with the Braves this winter that could have paid him as much as $4.5MM. He would have received a $1MM bonus for making the team. Glavine had just finished rehabbing and had proclaimed himself ready for big league action.

We heard today that Glavine doesn't expect to play in 2010, but his career could be over sooner than that. Ironically, his release comes on the same day fellow-lefty Randy Johnson makes his first attempt at joining Glavine in the 300 win club.
