Braves reach agreement with Glaus

Posted: Updated:

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.
