“Jacoby injured his right shoulder during yesterday’s game. An MRI was performed and showed findings consistent with a subluxed shoulder.

Repko, who has 355 games of major league experience, did not play for six days with Triple-A Pawtucket because of a minor injury. But he is in the lineup today in Rochester, playing center field.
