Phillies' Kody Clemens: Bound for Triple-A
The Phillies optioned Clemens to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.
Clemens and Scott Kingery were among the players Philadelphia sent to minor-league camp in the latest round of roster cuts, moves that likely ensure that Dalton Guthrie and Jake Cave have claimed the final bench spots on the team's Opening Day squad. After being acquired from the Tigers this offseason in a five-layer deal, Clemens made a big impression in his first spring with the Phillies, producing a 1.002 OPS while stealing three bases over 19 games. His ability to play multiple spots in the infield as well as both corner-outfield spots should put him near the top of the list for a call-up if the Phillies' position-player depth is tested at any point....

Phillies' Kody Clemens: Heads to Philadelphia
Clemens and Gregory Soto were traded from Detroit to Philadelphia on Saturday in exchange for Nick Maton, Matt Vierling and Donny Sands, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Clemens debuted as a 26-year-old last season but struggled significantly in 57 games, hitting just .145/.197/.308. A .148 BABIP undoubtedly accounts for some of his struggles, but his .193 xBA suggests his quality of contact was very poor. It's tough to see him earning significant at-bats on a contender like the Phillies, and he'll need a big step forward to deserve even a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Sits after slugging grand slam
Clemens is on the bench for Wednesday's season finale in Seattle.
Despite hitting a grand slam among his four at-bats in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Mariners, Clemens won't be rewarded with another start in the season finale. Even after connecting on his fifth home run of the season, the 26-year-old rookie is still sitting on a lowly .147/.198/.310 slash line over his first 126 big-league plate appearances....

Tigers' Kody Clemens: Enters lineup for Game 2
Clemens is starting at third base and batting sixth in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mariners.
After appearing as a pinch runner in the first game, Clemens will start at third base in the nightcap, with Jeimer Candelario shifting to DH. Clemens hasn't done much this season with just a .483 OPS across 55 games.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Recalled from Triple-A
Clemens was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.
Clemens was optioned to Toledo earlier this month, but he was brought back to take the roster spot of Kerry Carpenter (back), who was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. Clemens, who owns a .504 OPS at the top level this season, figures to fill a super-utility role over the final week of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Sent to Triple-A
Clemens was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after Sunday's loss to the White Sox, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
The 26-year-old has started only two games in September and will now head to the minors with Miguel Cabrera (biceps) returning from the injured list. Clemens has struggled in his first taste of the big leagues this year with a .150/.205/.299 slash line in 50 games.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Leads offense Tuesday
Clemens went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Astros.
Clemens was the only Detroit hitter to contribute two hits, with one of those knocks being his fourth home run of the season. The rookie is seeing sporadic playing time and is batting just .154 with a .519 OPS, so while Tuesday's outburst was nice, he doesn't have a ton of fantasy appeal at this point.... See More ...

Tigers' Kody Clemens: Enters lineup Sunday
Clemens is starting at third base and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Twins.
Clemens was called back up to the majors after the All-Star break and will be making his second start since play resumed. The rookie has struggled with a .153/.227/.322 slash line through 26 games, so he doesn't inspire a ton of confidence even when he's in the lineup. Fantasy managers can look elsewhere for now....

Tigers' Kody Clemens: Returns to majors
Clemens was called up from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.
Clemens will be back with the Tigers following the All-Star break after he was sent down to Triple-A on July 11. The 26-year-old has produced a disappointing .161 average with three home runs, eight RBI, eight runs and a stolen base over his first 56 major-league at-bats, which covers a span of 25 games....

Tigers' Kody Clemens: Sent to Triple-A
Clemens was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Monday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Clemens was 4-for-20 at the dish with two homers, three RBI, one stolen base and three runs scored through eight games in July, which includes Monday's twin bill. He'll be replaced on the big-league roster by Akil Baddoo.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Pops third home run
Clemens went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Guardians.
Spencer Torkelson (head) returned recently and is seeing regular run at first base, but Clemens has now started at second and third in the past few days. He's gone deep three times over his past seven contests, so while he might not have a clear path to playing time at first, the 26-year-old could carve out a utility role if he keeps hitting for power....

Tigers' Kody Clemens: Hits second home run
Clemens went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Royals.
Clemens had been seeing time at first base lately, but he shifted to second Sunday with Spencer Torkelson (head) returning to the lineup. Clemens already didn't have a ton of fantasy value with just a .146 batting average this season, and now his playing time is likely to decrease moving forward, though he should still see some starts as an infield reserve....

Tigers' Kody Clemens: Starting Saturday
Clemens is starting at first base and batting eighth in Saturday's game against the Royals.
Spencer Torkelson was hit in the head by a pitch Friday, so he'll get at least Saturday's contest off. If Torkelson has to miss more time, Clemens could get an extended look at first, though Harold Castro could also enter the lineup more frequently.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Hits first big-league homer
Clemens went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Diamondbacks.
Clemens put the Tigers ahead for good with his sixth-inning blast off Arizona reliever Joe Mantiply. This was Clemens' first major-league homer in 16 contests. The 26-year-old has hit .139 with five RBI and four runs scored while posting a 3:10 BB:K in 40 plate appearances. He hasn't hit enough to command regular playing time, instead serving as a depth option around the infield since the Tigers' outfield is in better health than it was when he was first summoned to the majors May 30....

Tigers' Kody Clemens: Starting at third Saturday
Clemens is starting at third base and batting ninth in Saturday's game against the Rangers.
With Harold Castro getting a breather and Jeimer Candelario (shoulder) still out of the mix, Clemens will take over the hot corner Saturday. The 26-year-old has just two hits in 27 at-bats so far during his MLB debut, making him a fairly unappealing fantasy option.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Tallies first two MLB hits
Clemens went 2-for-2 with a walk and two runs scored in Monday's loss to the White Sox.
Clemens finally got a few hits to his name, as he came into Monday 0-for-17 across nine games to begin his big league career. The 26-year-old may continue to see sporadic playing time for the Tigers, but he's not much of a fantasy asset at this point.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Starting in left Saturday
Clemens is starting in left field and batting seventh in Saturday's game against the Yankees.
Clemens made his MLB debut at second base, but this will now be his third start in left field. The 26-year-old's versatility is important, especially with the Tigers currently missing outfielders Robbie Grossman (neck), Austin Meadows (illness) and Victor Reyes (quadriceps). Clemens will likely see his role shrink once some of those other players start to return.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Kody Clemens: Hitless in MLB debut
Clemens went 0-for-3 with a walk in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins.
Clemens was called up from Triple-A Toledo on Monday and waited until the second game Tuesday to make his MLB debut. The 26-year-old replaced Robbie Grossman (neck) on the active roster, with the latter hitting the 10-day injured list Monday. Clemens will likely occupy a bench role while he's in the majors, which limits his fantasy potential for the time being.... See More ... See Less
