Personal

Clement is a two-way player – he can both pitch and play all three outfield positions – so he brings much versatility and flexibility to a club.

As a pitcher, he has good control, moves the ball around well, and changes speeds to keep hitters off balance.  The velocity on his fast ball ranges from the high-70s to low-80s (mph).  He has primarily been a relief pitcher.

In the outfield, Clement has good speed and ball-tracking ability.  He has played mostly in centerfield but is capable at either of the corner outfield spots.  At the plate, he is a good situational hitter who can execute the high-and-run and get bunts down.

He is a very hard-working, team-oriented player who is supportive of his teammates and injects positive energy into any environment.  He brings a calming presence into tight situations and has good baseball IQ. In 2023, he would be happy to either be a pitcher, an outfielder or both.
