Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Braves are close to a deal with free agent infielder Troy Glaus.
Glaus will play first base in Atlanta, according to Rosenthal, which makes sense considering the shoulder problems he dealt with this year. It also means that free agent Adam LaRoche probably won't be back. Glaus, 33, played in only 14 games in 2009 but hit .270/.372/.483 the year before with 27 home runs and 99 RBI. He seems plenty capable of a rebound.
