Brady Clark – His New York Mets Career 2002,2008

The New York Mets acquired outfielder Brady Clark along with Pedro Feliciano and Raul Gonzalez from the Cincinnati Reds on August 15, 2002 in exchange for Shawn Estes.  However, Clark would not make his Met debut until September 11th when he pinch ran for Jason Phillips.  He would finish out the season with Mets as a late inning defensive replacement and pinch hitter.  He wound up hitting .417 in his ten games due in large part to his 3 for 3 performance in his only start with the Mets on September 28th. 

Following the season Clark was claimed on waivers by the Milwaukee Brewers where he played for the next four seasons until moving on to the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres.  He returned to the Mets in 2008 when the Mets signed him to a minor league free agent contract.  After a strong Spring Training and with Moises Alou starting the season on the disabled list, Clark made the Mets Opening Day roster.  He would appear in eight games for the Mets in the month of April before being designated for assignment when Alou returned from the DL. Clark was hitting .250 (2 for 8) at the time of his demotion.  He reported to the Mets Triple A affiliate the New Orleans Zephyrs but appeared in just six games before becoming injured. The injury shut down Clark for the season.

The 2008 season would be his last season in the Majors.  In 17 games for the Mets Clark hit .350 (7 for 20) with two RBIs. 

While with the Mets Clark wore number 15 in 2002 and 44 in 2008. 

Brady Clark also played for the following teams:
Cincinnati Reds – 2000-2002
Milwaukee Brewers – 2003-2006
San Diego Padres – 2007
Los Angeles Dodgers – 2007
