Dodgers, Repko reach agreement
Outfielder avoids arbitration with one-year contract
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers reached agreement Monday with outfielder Jason Repko on a one-year contract for $500,000. He can earn another $87,500 through incentives for plate appearances.
Repko, 28, spent most of the 2008 season at Triple-A Las Vegas and made it through the entire season healthy for the first time since 2005. He hit .283 with 12 homers at Triple-A and played in 22 games during two stints with the Dodgers, hitting .167. He earned $487,500 last year.
Repko's signing leaves the Dodgers with three players eligible for salary arbitration: Jonathan Broxton, Andre Ethier and Russell Martin.
