ATLANTA (AP) - Braves pitcher Tom Glavine threw in the outfield
on Monday and says he felt better about his ailing left shoulder.

The 43-year-old Glavine stopped throwing for two weeks after his
shoulder began hurting during a minor league rehab start. He threw
in the outfield before Sunday's game at Cincinnati. Then he
attempted two sets of 15 throws from 70 feet before the opener of a
three-game series against St. Louis at Turner Field.

Glavine says he hopes to throw off the mound before the end of a
nine-day homestand. That's when he should know if he'll be able to
pitch this season.
