Tony Clark


The Arizona Republic reported that Clark played catch on Wednesday from 100 feet away as he tries to come back from a right shoulder strain. Once the first baseman can reach from 120 feet, he will be sent on a minor league rehabillitation assignment.


Clark was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with a right shoulder strain. The Diamondbacks' first baseman has been bothered by the injury for the past three weeks, according to Arizona manager Bob Melvin. Clark has struggled with a .185 batting average and five homers in 64 games this season, a year after hitting .304 with 30 home runs.


Clark injured his left knee in a September 20 contest, and the Diamondbacks' first baseman still is hobbling around the clubhouse. He didn't start on Thursday, and he may not play much over the final weekend of the season.


Clark belted a pinch-hit three-run homer late in Tuesday's loss to the Minnesota Twins, extending his current hitting streak to 11 games. Over that span, the Diamondbacks' veteran first baseman is 18-for-32 (.563) with four doubles, five home runs and 13 RBI.
