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.
