AP source: Braves reach agreement with Glaus

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells
The Associated Press the Braves have reached a preliminary
agreement on a one-year contract with Troy Glaus, who is likely to
move to first base with Atlanta.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is
not final. The agreement is pending a physical planned for the
first week of January.

Glaus has played third base most of his career but the Braves
probably would use him at first base in place of Adam LaRoche, who
became a free agent. Glaus played in two games at first base for
St. Louis this year, when he missed most of the season while
recovering from shoulder surgery. He hit .172 in only 14 games.

The deal was first reported by foxsports.com.
