Outfielder Nick Weglarz has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Double-A, MLBTR has learned. The Indians had designated the 24-year-old for assignment over the weekend, removing him from the 40-man roster and exposing him to other teams. The team has confirmed the move (on Twitter).
Weglarz, the Indians' 2005 third round selection, has spent the 2012 season at Double-A. He has a .202/.295/.333 batting line so far this season, but he had a batting line of .285/.390/.503 as recently as 2010. Baseball America ranked him 58th among MLB prospects entering the 2009 season. Weglarz, who bats and throws left-handed, reached Triple-A in 2010, but has yet to play in the Major Leagues.
