Rays signed OF Nick Weglarz to a minor league contract.

The deal also includes an invitation to spring training, though Welgarz is highly doubtful to land a spot on Tampa Bay's Opening Day roster. He batted .239/.349/.413 with 14 home runs and 58 RBI in 109 games this past season at the Double-A level.

Indians designated OF Nick Welgarz for assignment.

Welgarz was batting just .202/.295/.333 in 24 games this year in the minor leagues. He's likely to pass through waivers and accept a spot back at Triple-A Columbus.

Indians head athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff said Wednesday that prospect outfielder Nick Weglarz was held out of the early part of the exhibition schedule due to back spasms.

Weglarz first felt the symptoms because of a collision in the outfield during winter ball, so the Indians have treated him conservatively this spring. He's now available to play in games. The 23-year-old batted .285/390/.503 with 13 homers and 47 RBI between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus last season and was recently ranked as the organization's No. 5 prospect by Baseball America.

Nick Weglarz went 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBI for Double-A Akron on Sunday.

Weglarz is back at Akron to open 2010 after hitting .227/.377/.431 for the Aeros last year. There’s a lot to like about his patient approach, but injuries have taken a toll on his production. He needs to get back to showing 25-homer power this year, and he’s off to a nice start, with two bombs among his six hits through four games.

Nick Weglarz homered and doubled twice in five at-bats for Double-A Akron on Friday.

It's about time. Weglarz had been 10-for-56 with one extra-base hits this season.

Nick Weglarz went 0-for-5 in a doubleheader Friday and is batting .068 for Double-A Akron.

Weglarz finished at .276/.395/.497 in low-A ball in 2007 and .272/.396/.432 at high-A Kinston last year, but he's just 3-for-44 in his first taste of Double-A.

Nick Weglarz went 4-for-4 with two homers Saturday for Single-A Kinston.

The 20-year-old Weglarz is batting .270/.396/.448 with 10 homers. He's settling in as a very fine outfield prospect, perhaps one of the most underrated ones in baseball. The left-handed hitter is even batting .305/.412/.463 against southpaws.

Nick Weglarz went 2-for-4 with a homer Saturday for Single-A Kinston.

All Weglarz did early on was walk, but he has 13 hits in his last eight games, giving him a much nicer .296/.457/.481 line for the year. He displayed 20-homer power last year and it looks like he's working on cutting back on the strikeouts, so he's a fine prospect.

Nick Weglarz underwent surgery for a broken hamate bone in his right hand on Friday and is expected to miss the rest of the minor league season.

Weglarz, a 2005 third-round pick, was originally injured in spring training. He played in just one game in the Gulf Coast League this season before opting for surgery. He might be ready to take part in the Florida Instructional League.
