Jason Repko was shaking hands in the clubhouse after the game. No he wasn't traded.

Repko, who is on the disabled list with bursitis in his left shoulder, is headed to Class AAA Rochester to begin a rehab assignment. Eventually, the Twins will have another healthy body to choose from. Repko has  been out since Aug.11.
