Outfielders Jon Weber and Tydus Meadows, both key members of Jacksonville's Southern League champions, and catcher Edwin Bellorin, who played at Vero Beach, have signed 2006 contracts with the Dodgers instead of venturing elsewhere. The deals included invitations to spring training with the parent Dodgers for Weber and Meadows although Bellorin's did not.
Weber hit .300-11-68 for the Suns after playing in the A's organization in 2003. He's 27 and previously was in the Reds system and in independent ball. Meadows, 28, also came to the Dodgers as a free agent after 2003 and was previously in the Cubs, Royals and Rangers systems. Neither has any big league
It was something of a surprise that Bellorin re-signed for he had indicated plans to leave the Dodgers after he was demoted from Jacksonville to Vero Beach last season. He posted a .273-3-33 mark in the Florida State League. At 23, he'll enter his eighth professional season, all spent with the Dodgers.
