The Toronto Blue Jays sent Kellen Sweeney to extended spring training in Florida on Wednesday after the former Cedar Rapids Jefferson star continued to struggle with the Lansing Lugnuts in the Class A Midwest League.
Sweeney hit .179 in 43 games with Lansing and committed 11 errors at third base. He was 25-for-140 with the Lugnuts with two doubles, one triple and 12 RBIs.
The Blue Jays selected Sweeney in the second round of the 2010 major league draft. He played sparingly at the end of the 2010 campaign in rookie ball after signing a pro contract, then missed most of the 2011 season with a wrist injury.
