Braves Sign Troy Glaus To An One-Year Deal

For the second day in a row, the Braves make a move.  Yesterday they got Melky Cabrera and Mike Dunn.  Today, Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that they went out and got Troy Glaus.

The Braves have reached agreement on a one-year contract with free agent Troy Glaus to play first base, according to a major-league source.

The deal, which also includes incentives, is pending a physical, the source said.

Glaus, 33, has made only six career appearances at first, two last season with the Cardinals. However, he will give the Braves a potent right-handed bat as they seek to improve their offense.

The Braves had balked at re-signing free-agent first baseman Adam LaRoche due to his high price, sources said.
