Braves | Glavine may file grievance against team
Updating previous reports, Gregg Clifton, the agent for free-agent SP Tom Glavine (Braves), has spoken with a labor attorney and the players' union about possibly filing a grievance against the Atlanta Braves, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Players cannot be released by teams due to financial reasons, according to the collective-bargaining agreement, and Glavine would have received a $1 million bonus once he made the big league roster. He would have made an additional $1.25 million for 30 days on the roster and another $1.25 million for 90 days on the roster. However, Braves general manager Frank Wren claimed Glavine was released for performance reasons rather than financial reasons.
