D’Backs Acquire Tony Clark

2:37pm: Turns out the Padres will get a Single A pitcher for Clark: Evan Scribner.

1:41pm: ESPN’s Buster Olney says it’s a done deal.

12:04pm: According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, the D’Backs "appear to be closing in" on a trade for first baseman/pinch-hitter Tony Clark.  It would be for a Double A pitching prospect, and could get done today.  Piecoro says Clark will apparently waive the $500K bonus he was to receive upon a trade.

Clark almost re-signed with Arizona last winter.  He was known as a clubhouse leader in his previous stint with the D’Backs.
