Clark to DL, Whitesell recalled
The D-backs on Wednesday placed first baseman Tony Clark on the 15-day disabled list with a strained ligament in his right hand and recalled first baseman Josh Whitesell from Triple-A Reno.
Clark has been bothered by the hand injury since he injured it against the Rangers in the final week of Spring Training and it has particularly bothered him while swinging left-handed.
Whitesell was hitting .356 for Reno in 87 at-bats. He is hitting fifth in Wednesday’s lineup.
