Anyone notice Tony Clark?

Don't know much about Clark, but he has produced when he's gotten the PT in the past. Someone in my 14 team league picked him up last week and has gotten a nice boost because of it. He seems to be seeing some more time, but will he actually get to see some consistent time with Tracy playing 1B in AZ?

That's the concern with picking up Clark for fantasy purposes. He's getting playing time now because he's swinging one heck of a hot stick but once he cools off Tracy will get the playing time and he'll go back to DH.

DH? :-? Did you mean bench?

When Clark was with the Yanks last season his bat was real SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. He could not get around on any fastball in the 90s and was basically a mistake/curveball hitter.

I have no idea what has changed or whether the D'backs are spotting him well against non-hard throwers or what, but I find it difficult to believe that Clark can keep this up. Then again, who knows.
