Glavine Doesn’t Expect To Pitch In 2010
Jim O'Hara of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Tom Glavine expects this season to be his last. When he looks at this year's rotation Glavine says the only "logical spot" is as the fifth starter. With Javier Vazquez, Derek Lowe, Jair Jurrjens and Kenshin Kawakami in the rotation, Glavine's probably right.
"That's why I don't see pitching beyond this year," he says.
Next year Tommy Hanson, Kris Medlen and Jo-Jo Reyes could all play bigger roles for the Braves. For now, Glavine's ready to return after pitching six scoreless innings in a rehab start. The Braves, like the Red Sox, have pitching to spare, which will gives them leverage if they decide to make a deal.
