Twins Sign Jason Repko

The Twins have signed Jason Repko to play center field for their Triple-A affiliate, according to Joe Christensen of the Star Tribune.  The 29-year-old was cut loose by the Dodgers on Wednesday, a move that saved the club $375K of his $500K salary.

In 2009 the oft-injured Repko hit .277/.329/.471 with 16 HRs for the Dodgers' Triple-A squad while making just 7 plate appearances in the majors.

I don’t blame them. He’s worth a shot. Plenty of tools.

I can’t see anything wrong with this, so good. Another potential guy if a Span emergency occurs.

Good luck to Jason. I always liked the guy. He and Eric Stults were the 2 longest tenured players with the Dodgers heading into this year. I really liked watching him play. Hes about as agressive a defender as you are going to find. And the arm… Good luck Repko!!

He should be fine, as he’s now with an organization with proper medical staff and coaching.

I never understood why Repko was never considered one of the Dodgers Young prospects. Its been really strange how people judge Repko. I mean this guy, when healthy, and when given consistent playing time had a good average, could hit home runs, has speed, plays good defense, and was a good player overall then. But some of the people in LA made it seem like he sucked, or that he was only a 4th outfielder. It didnt make sense. I mean to give you an idea of how people judge Repko, Steve “Psycho” Lyons once implied that Repko is a starter. And then that went away……Kevin Kennedy has implied that Repko is a starter, and yet so many Dodger’s fans labeled him a 4th outfielder……and another frustating thing was people said things like well he gets injured alot so thats why management didnt give him a chance….and yet….when he was healthy and did good sometimes management still didnt give him a consistent chance……i mean this guy would have good spring after spring after spring, and they would either give him a chance in the big leagues, where he did good, and then they would bench him, or after a good spring training they would send him to the minors……I mean there have been so many springs where he hit a good average, had a homer or two, had RBI’s, had speed, played good defense, and some people woudlnt make it seem like he was a potential or one of the possible future players that might have a chance to start……i know sometiems there wasn’t any room….but sometims there was………This guy is kind of simiilar to Jayson Werth’s skills, maybe a little less then here well might so hope . . . . . . . .

Wow, what a racist remark. Gimp. The Twins have a mixture of players of many ethnicities. Your remarks stink of race hatred. Get a life.

Also, while Mauer and Morneau are probably the fan favorites today, Torii Hunter was beloved by Minnesota when he was there even though he was not always the perfect gentleman. Plus, anyone cheering for the Twins in the 80’s and early 90’s knows that Kirby Puckett was the king. Your casual disregard for facts in order to make an edgy joke is irritating and makes you look out of touch.

Furthermore, the Twins have two rings from the last 25 years. More than most organizations can boast over that same period. Two generations of “scrappy white guys who will never win a World Series” won the World Series while playing there.

Idiot.
