SEATTLE (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have activated Tony Clark from the disabled list after the veteran infielder missed 41 games with a sprained hand.

Clark was in the lineup at first base and batting sixth for Friday night's game at Seattle. He turned 37 while he was on a seven-game rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Reno.

Clark was 4 for 25 (.160) with a home run and two RBIs with Reno.

He was batting .179 with two homers and five RBIs in 17 games with Arizona before the switch-hitter went on the DL with a sprained ligament on his right hand.

Arizona optioned infielder Josh Whitesell to Reno to make roster room for Clark. Whitesell batted .214 in 20 games with the Diamondbacks.
