Clark (no relation to teammate Kirk Clark) belted 24 home runs in 2010 to lead the South Atlantic League while playing with the Class A Asheville Tourists. The 26-year-old earned league post-season all-star honors and the MiLB.com Organization Player of the Year award. Slowed by injury in 2011, he rebounded in 2012 to crack 24 home runs again, this time garnering another MiLB.com Organization Player of the Year award with the high-A Modesto Nuts of the California League. Clark batted .236 last season in Modesto with 27 doubles and 95 RBI.
Entering just his fifth season, Clark already has 66 home runs and 254 RBI with a .273 lifetime average. He did not sign when the Cleveland Indians drafted him in 2007 nor when the Los Angeles Angels did so in 2008. The Rockies finally landed Clark in the 12th round of the 2009 draft out of Cal State Fullerton. He has spent his entire career thus far in the Rockies’ system.
