The Braves have signed 33-year old righty swinging Troy Glaus to take over as the starting 1B in 2010. His deal is worth $2 million bucks plus incentives and it’s a 1-year deal. Glaus played in only 14 games last season as he was recovering most of the year from shoulder surgery and he was 5 for 29 (.172 avg, .491 OPS) with 2 runs scored and 2 RBIs. He has now played in 1,409 games in his 12 years in the majors and he is 1,276 for 4,998 (.255 avg, .856 OPS) with 837 runs scored, 304 homers, 879 RBIs and 56 stolen bases. This is a good gamble for the Braves as Glaus is a excellent power hitter.
