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.
