Dodgers Release Jason Repko

WEDNESDAY, 1:08pm: The Dodgers released Repko, reports MLB.com's Ken Gurnick.  The move saved the team $375K of his $500K salary.

TUESDAY, 6:34pm: The Dodgers have placed outfielder Jason Repko on waivers, major league sources tell Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  The move is less than surprising, as there is no room in Los Angeles' outfield for the club's first-round selection in the 1999 draft.

The 29-year-old has suffered multiple injuries throughout his career and has not seen significant time in the Majors since 2006.  In 433 plate appearances for the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate last season, Repko hit .277/.329/.471 with 16 home runs.
