With Chances of Boston Call-up Remote, Clark Leaves Pawsox

Injuries and trades led to the Pawtucket Red Sox fielding only 10 position players at one point this past week. However, it turns out that one of those reported medical maladies was not true. Outfielder Brady Clark, who was signed as insurance for the Boston bench if a trade deadline deal to acquire a right-handed bat was not made, has apparently left the team and returned home, according to Pawsox broadcaster Steve Hyder.

When Wily Mo Pena was not traded at the deadline, Clark apparently "saw the writing on the wall," according to Hyder, and left the team. Hyder's report also said that Clark is not expected to return to the team. Clark's absence from the lineup had previously been reported as a case of the flu. He has been placed on the Temporarily Inactive List (TIA).

Clark had played in five games for Pawtucket, going 5-for-19 with one home run. For now, it appears that Joe McEwing and Bobby Scales will see most of the innings alongside Brandon Moss in the outfield, while Matt Sheely, who has been recalled from Single-A Greenville, and DH Michael Tucker will see plenty of time as well.
