Clark hit .349 with three home runs and five RBI in 43 plate appearances this spring while Rogers hit .361 with one double and five RBI in 36 plate appearances.
Wooten posted a 1.26 ERA in 14 1/3 innings with two runs allowed and eight strikeouts.
With the majority of the roster set, one of the
Clark, an outfielder/first baseman, and Rogers, who plays both corner positions, have impressed during spring and the final decision may come down to whether the Brewers want a lefty (Clark) or righty (Rogers) bat off the bench.
"We're trying to figure out what's the better fit for us," manager Ron Roenicke said. "There's a lot of ways we could go this year."
"If that bat is something you really think is important, you can (have two left-handed hitting first baseman on the roster)," Roenicke said. "In an emergency, he can go out (to the outfield).
"If you had Prince (Fielder) out there playing first base, then you don't need him. But we don't know with Lind how many games he's going to be out there. You want a guy to replace him that you feel good about. But the main thing is you need good pinch-hitters on the bench, and more left-handers than you do right-handers.
"He's got more experience than a lot of other guys. He went over to Japan (in 2013) and he's a smart hitter. He knows what he's doing. I think he'd be able to do it. He'll hit the ball all over the park. That's part of being a smart hitter."
"This is the first time I’ve ever come in on the roster," Clark said. "It’s easier to let your mind rest a little bit knowing that you’ve played in front of the big-league staff, they’ve seen you do well and it helps you kind of relax a little bit more than you would normally when you go in and they don’t know who you are. Then you’re like, 'I’ve got to make an impression right away.'"
Clark made his major-league debut in September and went 5 for 27 with three home runs over the season's final month.
"The experience is huge, being able to come in for September when the games really matter and actually help the team, contribute to wins," Clark said. "That shows you have confidence in yourself – 'When it comes down to crunch time, I can get it done.' Being able to do stuff to help the team win and move forward in September was a big stepping stone for me."
