Braves place Glaus on DL

Troy Glaus Some eyebrows were raised when the Braves acquired Derrek Lee. Would he replace Troy Glaus at first? Were the Braves going to move Glaus to third for Chipper Jones?

Well, yes.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 's David O'Brien tweets the Braves have placed Glaus on the disabled list, and after a week off he'll go to Triple-A Gwinnett. With Gwinnett, he'll work out at third base so he can play both first and third in September (and presumably October).

Glaus has been hampered with a sore left knee.

After a hot start, Glaus has found himself with a .239/.343/.406 slash line and 16 home runs and 61 RBI. On June 13, he was hitting .290/.382/.504 and in the 51 games since then, he's hit .173/.294/.277 with three homers and 21 RBI.

The Braves have super-sub Omar Infante to use with Martin Prado and mix-and-match the two at second and third base, while Glaus and Lee could be a righty/lefty platoon at first, while Glaus could have a spot start here and there at third base.

I'd the short article to undertake this is my mission in the training, and it is experienced similar content with the golf irons information. With thanks, good show.

That's great but Lee and Glaus are both righties so the righty/lefty platoon is out.
