According to sources, the Braves have released the two-time Cy Young Award winner after he threw six scoreless innings in his latest rehab start.
The left-hander has a career record of 305-203 and career ERA of 3.54.
Glavine, however, is left wondering what he could be doing to get back to the bigs.
The Braves told Glavine that he was being released because his velocity is down, one source said. However, Glavine was throwing only 76-78 miles per hour in spring training and in recent starts had increased that to 83-86 miles per hour.
