PHOENIX (AP) -- With Jason Repko out for possibly the entire season, the Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired right-handed hitting outfielder Brady Clark from Milwaukee for reliever Elmer Dessens.

The Dodgers also get cash in the deal.

The 33-year-old Clark has a .278 career batting average over seven seasons with Cincinnati, the New York Mets and Milwaukee.

He hit .263 with four homers and 29 RBI's in 138 games last season.

Repko was injured last Thursday while chasing a fly ball.

An MRI exam shows he tore two hamstring tendons off his pelvis bone.

He'll have surgery Wednesday.

The 36-year-old Dessens has a 46-59 record and 4.41 ERA with Pittsburgh, Arizona, Los Angeles and Kansas City.
