 and was examined by Dr. James Andrews, who advised treatment and rest.

Glavine said he's tired of rehabbing after elbow and shoulder surgery last August. He's willing to give the shoulder two weeks, but not much longer.

"I'm willing to put in a little more time but I'm not willing to put in another six weeks or eight weeks because by then, you know what, I'm going to have to start all over again and I'm not interested in doing that," he said.

Glavine joined the Braves at Turner Field on Tuesday night following the examination in Birmingham, Ala. He ended Sunday's minor league start with Double-A Mississippi after two innings due to soreness in the shoulder after swinging a bat.

Investigators await Fidrych autopsy results

Authorities are awaiting autopsy results on Mark Fidrych and trying to figure out how the former Detroit Tigers All-Star pitcher died on his Massachusetts farm. Fidrych was found dead Monday at 54 beneath a 10-wheel dump truck at his Northborough, Mass., home.

Although he appears to have died from an accident, state law requires that all unattended deaths be investigated. The Worcester District Attorney's office said it does not expect autopsy results Tuesday.

Fidrych was the American League's Rookie of the Year Rookie of the Year may refer to:

  • Rookie of the Year (film), a 1993 starring Thomas Ian Nicholas
  • Rookie of the Year (album) by rapper Ya Boy
 in 1976, going 19-9 with a 2.34 ERA and pitching 24 complete games for Detroit. He won the hearts of fans across the country by talking to the ball and smoothing out the pitcher's mound between innings.

Fidrych only won 10 more games in an injury-ruined career, but The Bird remains a beloved figure in Detroit sports history.

"In the two years he was here, he was probably the most popular Detroit Tiger there has ever been," Hall of Famer Al Kaline said before Detroit's game against the Chicago White Sox The Chicago White Sox are a professional baseball team based in Chicago, Illinois.
