Inglett, 29, will not report to the Blue Jays, who have 16 games remaining and are well out of playoff contention. Inglett batted .253 with four home runs and 57 RBIs in 107 games with Triple-A Buffalo this season.
Glaus is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery next week to repair a nerve in his left foot, the latest blow in an injury-filled season that has also included accusations he received performance-enhancing drugs.
On Sept. 7, Glaus' name surfaced in a report accusing him of receiving performance-enhancing drugs from a Florida pharmacy under investigation for illegally distributing prescription medications. Glaus has declined to comment on the report.
Glaus batted .262 with 20 home runs and 62 RBIs in 115 games this season. He left in the second inning of Monday's game at Detroit after experiencing pain while running the bases.
Glaus has been hobbled by a variety of foot and leg ailments throughout the season, including a painful heel condition called plantar fasciitis. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 12, missing 14 games, and later sat out games in May and August.
