PHOENIX -- Taylor Clarke will be called up from Triple-A Reno on Saturday and start that night’s game against the Giants.
“Look, Taylor deserves this opportunity,” D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said. “He had been throwing the ball extremely well before he was sent out, so I know he’s excited to be back here and I’m excited to see what he can help us out with.”
Clarke has appeared in 14 games, 13 starts, in four previous stints with the D-backs this year. The right-hander was optioned to Reno on Aug. 5. In his final three starts before his demotion, Clarke was 2-0 with a 2.65 ERA.
