Weglarz Hopes To Stay Healthy In 2012

April 19, 2012 |

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.

Developing Stars Expected to Shine in Indians’ New Carolina Home

April 9, 2012 |

Cleveland Indians officials expect a crop of exciting young infielders to grow their skills with the Carolina Mudcats this season and help replenish the farm system depleted by promotions and trades.

Led by former Florida Marlins Manager Edwin Rodriguez, Cleveland’s new high-A affiliate started their season at home in Zebulon, N.C., against the Winston-Salem Dash.  Rodriguez says the team will entertain fans and win; he emphasizes he means this.

“We’re going to be a young team, and we’re also going to be a very offensive team,” Rodriguez says, on the field before Tuesday’s exhibition loss to the Indians. “We’re going to be very talented.”

Batting Practice Blasts Top Behind-the-Scene Highlights in Zebulon

Beyond the outfield fence, as I chatted with a few local reporters hours before the Indians played their exhibition game on Tuesday, a Mudcats grounds-crew member shouted a friendly warning.

“I wouldn’t stand there,” he yelled.  As the Mudcats staffer scurried into a shed to resume his pre-game preparations, he pointed back toward the field, where the Indians had started taking batting practice.

Less than a minute later, a ball sailed over the right-field fence and landed about 10 feet in front of us. We rushed to the area under the light stand, beneath a protective batting cage.

Indians Welcome Minor League Affiliate With Whacking; Indians 13, Mudcats 0

Asdrubal Cabrera, Jason Donald, and Shelley Duncan all homered Tuesday as Cleveland blasted its new minor-league partner, the single-A Carolina Mudcats.

Derek Lowe added three scoreless innings as the starter for the Tribe as 6,362 attended in the 6,500-seat stadium in Zebulon, N.C. for an afternoon game. Indians Manager Manny Acta pulled most of his starters after the fourth inning on the way to a 13-0 Tribe win.

The score didn’t matter much. In fact, left-handed pitcher Scott Barnes donned a navy Indians uniform as he started for the Mudcats. The big-league club touched him for 4 earned runs, 5 hits, and 3 walks in 4 innings.
