305-game-winner, Tom Glavine, has reportedly been released by the Atlanta Braves. The Cooperstown-lefty was released today because Atlanta thought he wasn't good enough anymore for striking out major-league batters, according to what SI.com said.

Glavine was improving his play, now pitching in his mid-80's. Here's an expert from what the SI.com article reported:

"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.

Glavine was to receive a $1 million bonus for pitching in the majors this year, but he didn't pitch one inning for the Braves."

Glavine is a 22-year veteran with a 305-203 record. He spent most of his time with the Braves, then coming to New York to play for the Mets in his later years. He later went back to Atlanta a couple of years ago.

According to Glavine's agent, the old lefty still wants to play and was shocked with the release, SportsCenter found out.

Glavine has also won two Cy Young awards and was a ten-time all-star. Glavine was also a four-time Silver Slugger.

Let's hope that Glavine finds a team. Philly might get him but with Bastardo's performance against the Padres on Tuesday, I don't think they need anyone now.

Glavine, I wish you all the best.
