Brewers sign Clark to two-year contract

The Milwaukee Brewers today reached agreement with outfielder Brady Clark on a two-year contract, it was announced today by Brewers Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin. The agreement was reached prior to today's scheduled salary arbitration hearing. Per club policy, no terms were released.

Clark, 32, enjoyed his finest season as a Major Leaguer in 2005, hitting .306 as the Brewers every day centerfielder and leadoff hitter. He established career-highs in hits (183), doubles (31), home runs (13) and RBI (53). Clark also was among the National League leaders in batting average (three-way tie for eighth) and hit batsmen (third with 18).

The 2005 season marked Clark's third season with the Brewers as he was claimed off waivers from the New York Mets on January 21, 2003. He previously played with the Mets (2002) and the Cincinnati Reds (2000-2002). Clark was originally signed as a non-drafted free agent by the Reds on January 13, 1996.

With today's signing, the Brewers have reached agreement with 22 of the 40 players on the 40-Man roster.
