Matt Clement threw two innings in the Double-A – Triple-A game today. It was a camp day, so Memphis played against Springfield, and Clement was pitching for Springfield.
He didn’t actually complete either inning. Each time, they called the inning off when he reached a certain count — 20 in the first inning, 17 in the second.
Clement had a lot of movement on his ball, but both command and velocity were lacking. He was pitching at 84-85 mph and hit 86 twice. Of the seven batters he faced, he walked four, he struck out one, retired one on a flyball out and one reached on an error. He got three swinging strikes.
