Twins Avoid Arbitration With Repko, Neshek

The Twins avoided arbitration with outfielder Jason Repko, tweets SI's Jon Heyman, agreeing to a $600K contract for 2011.  Repko gets a $100K raise after hitting .228/.324/.346 in 146 plate appearances for the Twins.  The former first-round pick played all three outfield positions in 2010.

Minnesota also reached a deal with reliever Pat Neshek for $625K, tweets John Shipley of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.  Neshek, 30, had Tommy John surgery two years ago and also dealt with a finger injury early this year.  He spent most of the year at Triple-A, posting a 3.89 ERA, 5.7 K/9, 3.0 BB/9, and 0.9 HR/9 in 39 1/3 innings.  He had the same $625K salary in 2010.
