With Repko battling a slight left shoulder separation, the 31-year-old outfielder is heading to the disabled list on Monday. The Red Sox will recall Lars Anderson, a first baseman who is attempting a conversion to the outfield in Triple-A.
Red Sox skipper Bobby Valentine could test out the 24-year-old's newly developed skills soon as he awaits Repko and Carl Crawford's respective returns.
"We'll talk to [Anderson] about it," Valentine said of playing him in the outfield. "We'll get the reports. He's here in case I want to use him in the outfield, maybe as a pinch hitter, left-handed bat."
Repko originally suffered the shoulder injury after making a diving catch — and subsequently crashing against the Fenway wall — during Friday's game against the Yankees.
