Tuesday's Braves Buzz

The Troy Glaus signing was formally announced on Tuesday.

Aside from adding a pinch-hitter/fourth outfielder (Don't we have plenty of those already?), the Braves don't expect to make any more moves this off season. This would seem to kill speculation that the Braves might make a run at Johnny Damon if his asking price dropped.

Adrian Beltre, a player I thought might be a good fit for the Braves, signed with the Boston Red Sox.

Matt Swartz of Baseball Prospectus looked at how MLB teams assemble their rosters (subscription required). The Braves seemed to be among the best at balancing young, cheap talent with free agents.
