Braves boot Glavin

Associated Press - June 3, 2009 6:33 PM ET

ATLANTA (AP) - In a stunning move, the Atlanta Braves have released 305-game winner Tom Glavine, just when it seemed he was ready to return to the big leagues.

The 43-year-old Glavine, who was coming back from shoulder and elbow surgery, threw six scoreless innings for Class-A Rome on Tuesday night and proclaimed himself ready to pitch in the majors again.

Instead, the Braves cut him Wednesday, another move that figures to draw the ire of Atlanta fans after the team failed to re-sign John Smoltz during the offseason.
