Repko enters his 14th pro season and is a veteran of parts of seven Major League seasons, having totaled 360 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Minnesota Twins, and Boston Red Sox. The 32-year-old was a first round draft pick of the Dodgers in 1999 and broke into the big leagues when he made the Dodgers’ Opening Day roster in 2005. Repko made an immediate splash, connecting on a home run in his first career at-bat at Dodger Stadium, and spent the majority of his rookie season with the big club.
Repko was the Dodgers’ Opening Day centerfielder in 2006, but after batting .304 through his first 25 games, was limited the rest of the season due to an injury sustained while trying to rob a home run defensively. After being forced to miss the entire 2007 season due to injury, Repko split time between Triple-A and the Majors in 2008 and 2009. He once again saw regular time in the Majors with the Twins during the 2010 and 2011 seasons, and was with the Red Sox last April before injuring his shoulder. Upon returning, Repko spent most of last season at Triple-A Pawtucket, helping the PawSox claim the International League crown. He owns a .224 career average in the Majors, and a .270 lifetime mark in the minor leagues.
