Twins place Repko on 15-day DL
CHICAGO (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have placed outfielder Jason Repko on the 15-day disabled list with a sore left quad and called up Ben Revere from AAA Rochester.
The team announced the moves before Wednesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox.
Repko is the sixth Twins player currently on the DL, a list that includes star catcher Joe Mauer and veteran DH Jim Thome. Repko was batting .208 in 24 at-bats this season.
Revere was hitting .293 in 23 games at Rochester.
In another move after Wednesday’s 3-2 victory over the White Sox, the Twins optioned catcher Steve Holm to Rochester. Holm was 2 for 17 in six games for Minnesota.
The Twins will fill Holm’s roster spot with a move prior to Friday night’s game in Boston.
