Clement was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Clement gave Cleveland extra infield depth with Amed Rosario away on bereavement leave, but he's no longer needed now that Rosario has gone through COVID-19 protocols and is back with the team. Clement went 3-for-11 with a homer during his brief time with the team but still owns a .624 OPS through 40 games thus far in his rookie season.
Clement went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during Tuesday's win over the Royals. Clement took Daniel Lynch deep with a 396-foot blast in the third inning. The long ball accounted for his first hit in three games since getting recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday. Overall this season, the 25-year-old is batting .227/.276/.336 with three homers across 39 games.
Cleveland recalled Clement from Triple-A Columbus ahead of Wednesday's game against the Twins. He'll join Cleveland as a replacement on the active roster for Amed Rosario (personal), who was placed on the bereavement list. Andres Gimenez will start at shortstop Wednesday and is expected to serve as the primary option at the position while Rosario is away from the team, but Clement could push Owen Miller and Yu Chang for work at second base in the short term.
Clement (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list and optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. Clement had been on the injured list since Aug. 26, but he began a rehab assignment at Double-A Akron on Saturday. He went 1-for-7 with three strikeouts across his two appearances and will remain in the minors at Triple-A Columbus after right-hander Aaron Civale (finger) was reinstated from the 60-day IL on Tuesday.
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.
