Glavine returns to Braves after five-year split

The two-time Cy Young Award winner agrees to a one-year, $8-million contract after passing on a $13-million option to return to the Mets next season.

Tom Glavine is coming home.

The 303-game winner returned to the Atlanta Braves on Sunday, agreeing to an $8-million, one-year contract, said his agent, Gregg Clifton.

The Braves needed less than a week to lure the two-time Cy Young Award winner back after an acrimonious split in 2002 that led to him spending five seasons with the New York Mets.

Glavine clearly wanted to finish his career with the Braves, turning down a $13-million option to return to New York in 2008 and instead taking a $3-million buyout. He then gave the Braves a hometown discount, something he wasn't willing to do five years ago. The contract includes no performance bonuses.

Glavine, who will turn 42 before the start of next season, went 13-8 with a 4.45 earned-run average in 200 1/3 innings for New York this year but got only one out and allowed seven runs in the first inning of his final start for the Mets, who completed their September collapse out of the playoff race.
