Harris Sent Down, Repko Called Up


Tough to not see this one coming. Brendan Harris, owner of the god awful .229 wOBA, has been outrighted to Rochester. In his stead the Twins called up OF Jason Repko.

Repko certainly doesn’t bring a great bat to Minnesota. His career major league line is .226/.297/.371, good for a .298 wOBA. But Repko is likely up with the club because he plays centerfield. It would be nice to give Denard Span a couple more days off, and Repko can do that. In his early days he was a pretty good outfielder, posting a 9.7 UZR in 2005 with the Dodgers. Tough to know whether or not he still has that ability, but his career UZR/150 in center is 22.2

Not a huge move, but with Brendan Harris off the 40 man, it’s unlikely we will ever see him in a Twins uniform again.
