The Red Sox have signed veteran outfielder Brady Clark to a AAA contract.
Clark, 34, hit .224 in 47 games with Los Angeles before being designated for assignment on June 10, clearing waivers, and becoming a free agent. He will join Pawtucket in Toledo for tonight's game. Jacoby Ellsbury was placed on the seven-day DL with a slight groin strain.
Clark debuted with the Reds in 2000. He later played for the Mets, Brewers and Dodgers. Over eight seasons, Clark has a career .277/.356/.386 line and a 94 OPS+.
Looks like a nice 4th outfielder pickup. It makes me think the WMP Era is coming to an end.
