Glavine Considering Grievance


According to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, Tom Glavine is considering filing a grievance against the Braves in the aftermath of his release Wednesday.  As Rosenthal reports,

Players cannot be released by their teams due to financial reasons, according to the collective-bargaining agreement.  Glavine was set to receive a $1 million bonus once he made the major-league roster, another $1.25 million for 30 days on the roster and another $1.25 million for 90 days on the roster.

The Braves maintain that Glavine's release was based solely on performance, and would seem to have a pretty strong case.  Glavine struggled with his velocity during several rehab starts and top pitching prospect Tommy Hanson will be promoted on Sunday.
