Twins sign 2005 No. 3 overall pick to minor league deal

MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Twins signed infielder Jeff Clement, a former No. 3 overall pick, to a minor league contract Monday. The contract includes an invite to major league spring training. Clement, 29, was the third overall pick in the 2005 draft when the Seattle Mariners took him after Justin Upton and Alex Gordon. But since then, Clement has played in just 152 major league...

Roster Watch: Jeff Clement

This one should be easy as the Pirates already made the right decision with Jeff Clement. Clement has been a flop at the major league level.  Not that the Pirates gave up much for him. Really have to think the Pirates made out in that deal just by acquiring Ronny Cedeno.  Clement was a longshot [...]

A Healthy Clement Ready for Opportunity with Pittsburgh

It’s been a long journey back to the big leagues for Jeff Clement. But on Friday, the first baseman was given the opportunity to battle his way back when the Pirates selected him from Triple-A Indianapolis to join the club in Pittsburgh.

Pirates call up Jeff Clement

The Pirates have called up Jeff Clement from Triple-A Indianapolis and swapped Yamaico Navarro to Indy to clear his spot. Clement will be back in the majors for the first time since 2010. This isn’t a very big move by any means; just a bench swap. Clement provides some power from the left side, and has had a pretty solid and consistent season in Indianapolis. He hit 16 homers with...

First Pitch: Will We See the First Base Prospects Move Up?

In the top three levels of the minors, the Pittsburgh Pirates have three first base prospects who look close to deserving a promotion. In Triple-A, Jeff Clement has been on a tear this year. Clement hit his 14th homer of the year on Friday night, and currently has a .297/.360/.529 line in 333 at-bats this year. A big difference this year is that his knee is finally healthy, giving...

Does Jeff Clement deserve another chance?

As Pat over at WHYGAVS mentioned earlier today, it is amazing that we are even discussing Jeff Clement. If you remember correctly, Clement broke camp as the Pirates’ starting first baseman in 2010 after he was acquired from Seattle in 2009 in the trade that sent Jack Wilson and Ian Snell to the Mariners. He didn’t fare too well hitting just .201/.237/.368. He struck out in 24...

I can't believe I'm writing about Jeff Clement, but I'm writing about Jeff Clement
