Dodgers sign Repko, avoid arbitration

Dodgers sign Repko, avoid arbitration

The Dodgers have agreed to terms with outfielder Jason Repko on a one-year deal worth $500,000, thus avoiding arbitration, according to a FOXSports.com report citing multiple sources.

Repko, who will compete in Spring Training for a spot on the Opening Day roster as a fourth outfielder, appeared in just 10 games with the Dodgers last season, going hitless in five at-bats. In 110 games at Triple-A Albuquerque, the 29-year-old right-handed hitter batted .277 with 16 home runs, 47 RBIs and 24 stolen bases.

Repko was selected 37th overall in the 1999 First-Year Player Draft, and his professional career has been stalled by ankle and hamstring injuries. Since making his big league debut with Los Angeles in 2004, Repko has combined to hit .226 with 11 homers, 47 RBIs and 11 steals in 230 games.
