When the Red Sox signed Jason Repko to a minor league deal over their, um, stingy offseason of spending, they knew they weren't getting a prolific hitter and MLB player.
Repko has been in and out of the Majors his entire career (since 2005), and in 360 games boasts a career .224 average.
He's appeared in just five games for the Sox this season, spending the majority of it with Triple-A PawSox. On Sunday, Repko used his glove to make up for what he lacks at the plate.
With the bases full of ScrantonWilkes Barre Yankees in the first inning, it looked as if things were going to be broken open early.
Repko had other ideas though . . . check out THIS catch.

Carlos Beltran, the 39-year-old switch hitter who was a potential target of the Red Sox as a DH, agreed to a free-agent deal with the Houston Astros, ESPN's Buster Olney reported.
FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports that it's a one-year, $16 million deal.
Beltran played for the Astros in 2004. He was dealt from the New York Yankees to the Texas Rangers at the July 31 trading deadline last season. He totaled 35 homers, 101 RBI and hit .295 in 2016.
The Red Sox, looking to fill the void left by David Ortiz's retirement, will be looking for a DH at the Winter Meetings that begin next week. One possibility is the return of Mike Napoli, who played for the A.L. champion Cleveland Indians last season.
