Jason Repko The Dodgers avoided arbitration with outfielder Jason Repko, signing him to a one-year, $500,000 contract. The deal includes $87,500 in incentives based on plate appearances.

Repko, 28, might figure into the Dodgers' plans if they fail to re-sign Manny Ramirez.

Repko missed the entire 2007 season because of a torn hamstring but returned last season to hit .283 with 12 home runs and 50 runs batted in in 121 games for triple-A Las Vegas. He was called up to the majors twice last season and hit .167 with a double in 22 games.

Stay tuned to for complete baseball coverage.
