Jason Repko  was an exciting, if not overly productive, outfielder for the Dodgers from 2005-09. He was also often injured, missing the entire 2007 season with a torn hamstring. Repko played 130 games for the Minnesota Twins in 2010-11 and five games this season for the Boston Red Sox after signing a minor league contract and getting called up April 15 when outfielders Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury went down with injuries. In his seven seasons, he's a lifetime .224 hitter -- his best season was batting .254 with 10 stolen bases in 69 games with the Dodgers in 2006 when he missed 2 1/2 months with a high ankle sprain.

It started with a conversation. It ended with a conversion. If anyone still doubts the 2006 Dodgers, they weren't watching in the final moments Friday night when every inch of this patchwork quilt of a team was thrown against the San Francisco Giants. The result was a smothering, stunning 4-3 victory. A victory that clinched at least a tie for the National League wild-card playoff berth.

Jason Repko is becoming difficult for the Dodgers to ignore. The outfielder is among the Grapefruit League's leading hitters, and every day he seems to do something different to impress Manager Jim Tracy. On Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, it was reaching over the center field fence to take a home run away from Carl Crawford. Two days earlier, it was throwing out a runner at third base from right field.

Hard-nosed rookie outfielder Jason Repko is a fresh face, yet something of a blur because he is always in motion. Lately, the direction is up. Not only is it apparent he will make the team, he will get most of the playing time in left field and bat second in the lineup while Jayson Werth is on the disabled list. Repko batted second for the 10th time this spring Sunday against the Atlanta Braves, notable because the opposing pitcher was acclaimed right-hander Tim Hudson.

There's a chance that outfielder Jason Repko, sidelined a week because of a strained right groin, will start the season on the disabled list, Dodgers Manager Grady Little said Friday. "We don't know. We don't have a calendar on his getting ready to play," Little said. "But we do know that speed is his game. Whether it's running the bases or playing defense. So we won't be pushing him and trying to rush the process along. "Without this No.

With shortstop Rafael Furcal and outfielder Marlon Anderson sidelined indefinitely because of sore arms, the Dodgers can ill afford an injury to another key player only three weeks before opening day. So the team was no doubt holding its collective breath Saturday when outfielder Jason Repko tumbled to the ground because of a right groin strain in the seventh inning of a 5-2 split-squad win over the Florida Marlins in Jupiter, Fla. But the injury looked worse than it was.

Call it youthful exuberance, but Jason Repko said he won't restrain himself on a deep fly ball to center field. "If I have a good shot at the ball, I'm going to go for it," Repko said. "That's my instincts." Of course, it was those same "instincts" that landed Repko on the disabled list for bounding into the outfield wall in May, resulting in a high-ankle sprain. Recalled from triple A, Repko started Monday in center field for the Dodgers for the first time since injuring the left ankle May 9.

A bases-loaded walk to Andre Ethier in the seventh inning scored Juan Pierre to give the Dodgers a 4-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. Arizona reliever Clay Zavada issued the walk to Ethier after Pierre walked, Rafael Furcal doubled and Matt Kemp was walked intentionally. Ethier also helped preserve the victory when he leaped against the right-field wall to catch a fly ball hit by Brandon Allen in the eighth inning.

The Dodgers invested $80 million in Juan Pierre and Andruw Jones, in an expensive but ultimately futile search for an anchor in center field. Pierre has been benched. Jones has been exiled to the Texas Rangers, with the Dodgers footing the bill. And, for the fifth consecutive season, the Dodgers will have a new center fielder on opening day. "Hopefully, I'm not going anywhere," Matt Kemp said.

HOUSTON -- The Dodgers don't top the league in anything, haven't led their division since the fourth game of the season and don't even have a winning record with half of the season gone. "I'm one to forget the first half," first baseman Mark Sweeney said. But the Dodgers do have the most expensive disabled list in baseball -- maybe in baseball history -- after losing Juan Pierre for at least a month because of a sprained ligament in his left knee. And as a result, the undermanned Dodgers were overwhelmed by the Houston Astros, 4-1, Monday in the opener of a seven-game trip.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Jason Repko will say what may be his final goodbye to Dodgertown this morning when he boards the bus for Jupiter and the team's final Grapefruit League game of the spring. And it probably won't be much longer before his says goodbye to his teammates since there appears to be little room for him on a roster heavy with talented outfielders. "Obviously it's a numbers deal. You've got your four guys that, if any team had four starting outfielders, they'd be your four starting outfielders," Repko said after going two for three with a run and his team-high 13th run batted in Monday in a 12-10 loss to the Houston Astros.

What are the odds? Rob Marchese, 41, of Queens, had been attending Yankee games for more than 30 years and had caught only one ball, a foul, before Thursday night. That night, sitting on a folding chair in the first row of the right-field stands, he got two chances in the Yankees' 7-2 victory over Cleveland, one inning apart. And he muffed both. He missed Alex Rodriguez's two-run homer in the first and then Jason Giambi's solo shot in the second.
