Kody Clemens called up from Triple-A by Detroit Tigers

It looks as though the MLB debut of one particular Detroit Tigers prospect could be forthcoming. The team has called up second baseman Kody Clemens from their Triple A affiliate Toledo Mud Hens:

Of course, Clemens is the son of Hall of Fame pitcher Roger Clemens, and was selected by the Tigers with the 79th overall pick of the 2018 Major League Baseball Draft. So far in 2022, he’s amassed a .283 average with eight home runs, 31 RBI, 27 runs and three stolen bases in 184 at-bats for Toledo.

The move was made necessary by the team placing Robbie Grossman on the 10-Day IL with a neck injury.

“Detroit’s treated me really well over my four years that I’ve been with them, and I’m super happy to be with them,” Clemens said earlier in the year. “I was so excited for them to put me on the 40-man. To hear that news was really great for me in my career.”

The Tigers host the division rival Minnesota Twins this afternoon at Comerica Park starting at 1:10 PM EST with coverage on Bally Sports Detroit and 97.1 The Ticket.
