Red Sox outfielder to rehab in Augusta tonight

Repko will play against GreenJackets

Boston Red Sox outfielder Jason Repko will join the Greenville Drive in their series opener tonight against the Augusta GreenJackets at Lake Olmstead Stadium.


Repko, in his seventh big league season and first with the Red Sox, will continue a minor league rehab assignment that started Monday in Greenville. He went 2 for 9 with two walks in a three-game series with Asheville.

The 31-year-old outfielder played four seasons with the Dodgers starting in 2005 after he was selected in the first-round of the 1999 draft. He played a career-high 129 games in his rookie year, batting .221 with eight homers, 15 doubles and 30 RBI.

Repko was signed as a free agent by the Twins in 2010 and played two seasons in Minnesota before being released.

The Red Sox signed Repko as a free agent before this season, and he played five games in April before landing on the disabled list with a left shoulder sprain.

The GreenJackets (29-35) and Drive (32-33) will play a doubleheader today starting at 5:05 p.m.
