Non-tender candidates Pat Neshek and Jason Repko will remain with the Twins and avoid arbitration after signing one-year contracts prior to tonight’s deadline.

Neshek will get $625,000 after spending most of 2010 on the disabled list or back in the minors following a shaky comeback from Tommy John surgery. He’ll compete for a spot in a bullpen that figures to be significantly different thanks to multiple free agents departing.

Repko, who was signed to a minor-league deal last offseason and then served as the Twins’ fourth outfielder after being called up in June, will get $600,000 to fill the same part-time role in 2011.
