Busy Weglarz growing into his frame

ST. LOUIS -- Call it a merit without the mileage.Indians prospect Nick Weglarz has represented his native Canada as part of the country's junior national team, in the Beijing Olympic Games and in the World Baseball Classic. Each of these exploits have been an honor for the 21-year-old who grew up near Niagara Falls, and they've allowed him to see parts of the world he never dreamed he'd see. He's been overseas three times in the past two years. The downside, if it exists, is a little thing known as jet lag.
