Braves sign Troy Glaus

The Braves have come to terms with infielder Troy Glaus on a one year deal, according to Glaus missed nearly all of 2009 last season, but has the power to have an impact off the bench from the right-side of the plate.

The deal is pending a physical.

Glaus boasts a career .856 on-base/slugging percentage. He has hit 20 or more home runs eight times, including in ’08, his most recent full season.

It will be interesting to see where the Braves go from here with talks with Adam LaRoche, who remains a free agent. This move could trigger the Mets to pursue LaRoche, who reportedly hasn't had contact with the Braves all offseason.
