By Sean Tuttle

Progressing to the big leagues is not easy task, but for minor leaguer Nick Weglarz, staying healthy may be his biggest obstacle.

Weglarz is entering his seventh season within the Indians minor league system, and his fourth as a member of the Akron Aeros. The 24-year old, left handed, outfielder was selected in the 2005 amateur draft by the Cleveland Indians in the third round, 94th overall.

Prior to the draft, Weglarz attended Lakeshore Catholic High School in Port Colborne, Ontario. As a Canadian, Weglarz had the opportunity to be part of Team Canada’s baseball team in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China. During his run in the Olympics, Weglarz hit .400 in the preliminary games, and .450 in the Olympic qualifier against Taiwan.

Weglarz’s made his largest advancement in 2010 when he was called up to Triple-A Columbus for fifty games. During that time he maintained a batting average of .286 with 50 hits, six home runs, and 20 RBI’s. He also drew 28 walks and struck out 43 times.
