Glavine '75-85 percent confident' he'll be back

NEW YORK -- In spring training, Tom Glavine was pretty sure he'd make it back from surgery. Then he felt pain in his left shoulder while swinging a bat in what was to be his final rehabilitation start, and he was pretty sure he'd never make it back.

And what about now?

"I'm 75-85 percent confident I'll get out there," the 43-year-old Braves lefty said today at Citi Field.

Glavine has thrown two bullpen sessions, including a 90-pitch workout Friday in Philadelphia. He has an even more intense session scheduled for Wednesday morning, then figures he'll need two rehabilitation starts in the minors before possibly joining the Braves rotation during a May 25-27 series in San Francisco.

Perhaps because of the earlier setback, or simply because he's 43, Glavine said he's not trying not to look too far ahead.

"I'm more prone to living in the moment than at any point in my career," Glavine said. "I feel confident. I'm just more realistic to the possibility that it might not happen."

Glavine said he still doesn't know what caused the earlier setback.

"They can't tell if I just tore some scar tissue adhesions or if I aggravated my rotator cuff," he said. "Maybe it was something that needed to go a little bit."

Tom Glavine deserves to go out on his own terms.  If he is healthy enough to pitch and can contribute to the Braves as a fifth starter, then the Braves should let him try.  After all thats the reason for resigning him.  I think he may have rushed back a little and he seems to be moving along just fine now as several stories have suggested. 

As for Tommy Hanson, the Braves love how this kid can pitch and his potential.  However he is still fairly young and the Braves do not want to rush him.  He is mowing down hitters in AAA ball and will be a fine Major League pitcher.  However the Braves have always been a cautious organization when it comes to young pitching.  He will be in Atlanta as soon as someone on the big club fails to produce.  That hasn't happened yet as the rotation has been very good so far in 2009 and the bullpen is coming around.

i'll admit, i'm biased because i've been a huge Tom Glavine fan ever since he came up to the majors in like 1987 or 1988, but i don't see why people are blaming Glavine for Hanson still being in AAA (and i don't mean just this thread, i've seen it elsewhere)...why don't they drop Reyes or Kawakami (or both)?  if Glavine's healthy, he's better than both of them, and if he's not, i think that he's earned the right to say he's done, with everything he's done for that organization over the past 20 years...
