Jason Repko returns to Revolution, Stantrel Smith released
After making a brief 24-game cameo with the Revolution to begin last season, outfielder Jason Repko has returned to the organization. Repko, 33, has Major League time in seven seasons between 2005 and 2012 with the Dodgers, Twins and Red Sox, 360 MLB games total. He’s the owner of 16 big league home runs and 67 RBI.
Drafted by the Dodgers in the first round in 1999, Repko made his MLB debut in Los Angeles in 2005, appearing in a career-high 129 Major League games that season. He hit .253 with a homer and 11 RBI with the Revolution last year. 2014 is Repko’s 15th professional season.
To make room on the roster and in a crowded Revs outfield group right now, Stantrel Smith was released. He signed with York less than a week ago on May 19, appearing in just two games with six at-bats. He recorded a walk and a run, but not a hit in that time.
The current active roster remains at 27 with six outfielders, with the league cut down to 25 active coming on June 1.
