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.
