According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, Glavine's contract is set up so that he makes money for being on the team:
- Base salary - $1 million
- One day on the active roster - $1 million
- Thirty days on the active roster - $1.25 million
- Ninety days on the active roster - $1.25 million
I'm not fully sure what this indicates. It's possible that Glavine could have to fight Charlie Morton, Jo-Jo Reyes, Jorge Campillo and Tommy Hanson for the fifth spot in the Braves rotation. It's a small possibility though. I'm almost certain that Glavine is going to be handed the spot because he's TOM GLAVINE.
I hope upon hope that Glavine makes the most of his final opportunity with the Braves. I have a hard time believing that he'll even reach 10 wins, though. Best of luck, Tommy. We'll see #47 beside #44 quite soon.
