LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Jason Repko underwent a
high-frequency ultrasound Friday to promote healing of the plantar
fascia in his left foot.
Dr. Kenneth Jung performed the procedure at the Kerlan/Jobe
Clinic and said it went well. Repko will wear a walking boot for
the next two weeks, Jung said, and then begin physical therapy.
The 25-year-old Repko hit .254 in limited duty last season with
three homers and 16 RBIs. He was sidelined from May 10 to July 23
because of a severely sprained left ankle. He was hitting .304 with
three homers and 12 RBIs in 24 games at the time of his injury.
As a rookie in 2005, Repko batted .221 in 129 games with eight
homers and 30 RBIs.
