Braves finalize contract with Glaus

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Troy Glaus and the Atlanta Braves have finalized

a $1.75 million, one-year contract, a deal that allows him to earn

an additional $2.25 million in performance and roster bonuses.

Glaus has played third base most of his career but the Braves

probably will use the 33-year-old at first base in place of Adam

LaRoche, who became a free agent.

Glaus played in two games at first base for St. Louis last year

after missing most of the season while recovering from shoulder

surgery. He hit .172 in 14 games.

He would earn $250,000 if he is on the active 25-man roster for

100 days. He also would get $350,000 each for 400, 450 and 500

plate appearances, $400,000 for 550 and $550,000 for 600.
