lOFTON ON DL REPKO TO START IN CF
The Dodgers placed 38-year-old center fielder Kenny Lofton on the 15-day disabled list Saturday night with a strained calf muscle suffered Thursday night in Las Vegas, opening up a roster spot for Cody Ross, who was out of options. Dodgers manager Grady Little said second-year player Jason Repko will be the Opening Day center fielder, but he had not decided who would bat second in Lofton's spot.
Analysis: Lofton will be placed on the disabled list retroactive to Wednesday. He will be eligible to return April 14, when the Dodgers return home to play San Francisco.
