Clement (undisclosed) began a rehab assignment at Double-A Akron on Saturday and has appeared in two games, going 1-for-7 with a double and three strikeouts between those contests.

Cleveland didn't provide an explanation behind Clement's placement on the injured list Aug. 26, but the transaction was presumably the result of COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Now that he's playing in rehab games, Clement looks to be on the cusp of rejoining Cleveland's active roster. He'll serve as a utility infielder once he's formally reinstated.
