Twins pick up Repko, will start in Triple-A

MINNEAPOLIS -- Jason Repko wasn't in the unemployment line for very long.

The former Hanford High star was picked up by the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, a week after being released by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Repko, 29, will play center field for Triple-A Rochester. According to MLBTradeRumors.com, the Dodgers are responsible for $375,000 of Repko's $500,000 salary this season.

An 11-year veteran of the Dodgers organization, Repko played 230 games over four seasons with the big club. He played in 129 games in 2005 before injuries derailed his progression.

He was just 2-for-24 in limited duty in spring training before being released by the Dodgers.
