Tony Clark Won’t Be Back With D’Backs’s Steve Gilbert talked to free agent first baseman Tony Clark recently, learning that the Diamondbacks have pulled their two-year offer to him off the table in light of their recent moves.

The acquisition of Chris Burke eliminated the bench spot that might’ve gone to Clark.  While a few teams mentioned the idea of a full-time role, Clark hasn’t received other concrete offers.

The Rangers have acquired Ben Broussard, so they’re probably out on Clark.  The Rays will get their leadership from Cliff Floyd.  The Twins probably don’t have room for Clark anymore.  The Dodgers may still have their eye on him, but beyond that his opportunities are shrinking fast.
