Repko Pulls a Werth

From "Repko's prognosis takes turn for worse" by Steve Henson at the L.A. Times:

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Weeks have morphed into months. That's the grim prognosis for outfielder Jason Repko's recovery from a hamstring injury.

Manager Grady Little originally said Repko's time on the disabled list would be "measured in weeks." On Saturday, he amended the assessment after Repko had an MRI, saying, "It's going to be a long time. The MRI didn't look good."

And the injury parade continues....

Left-hander Hong-Chih Kuo has been shut down from all throwing because of shoulder pain.

With Brett Tomko or Mark Hendrickson likely to start the season as the Dodgers' #5 pitcher, don't be shocked to see Chad Billingsley move out of the bullpen before the All-Star break.

So maybe Ned Colletti was can never have enough pitching. You can unpack those bags, Brad Penny.
