Twins sign Jeff Clement to minor league contract

The Minnesota Twins signed Jeff Clement to a minor league contract. Clement used to be a top level catching prospect for the Seattle Mariners but never produced at the major league level.

Clement spent last season at Triple-A with Pittsburgh. He finished his season there with a .276/.340/.486 line with 16 homers and 57 RBI. During 23 games at the big league level Clement hit just .136 and produced no extra base hits.

While Clement appeared to have a good season at Triple-A he will only be another name on the depth chart in Minnesota.
