  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Swipes bag Tuesday

    Clement went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Yankees.

    Getting the start at third base and batting seventh, Clement delivered his second straight multi-hit performance and fourth of the season. The 28-year-old utility player predictably hasn't been able to match his blistering spring now that the games count, but he's become a useful part of Toronto's mix-and-match infield, batting .289 (11-for-38) with three doubles, a homer, a steal, two RBI and eight runs while making appearances at third base (nine), shortstop (four), second base (one) and even left field (one).

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Clubs first homer of season

    Clement went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Yankees.

    Entering the game as a pinch hitter for Cavan Biggio in the top of the seventh inning, Clement broke open a 0-0 tie by driving a Caleb Ferguson fastball over the fence in left field. It was the 28-year-old infielder's first long ball and first RBI of the season, but he's had a solid start to the campaign, going 5-for-17 (.294) with three runs scored and only one strikeout. Clement's hit tool, defensive versatility and developing power -- he slugged 11 homers with a .196 ISO in 320 plate appearances for Triple-A Buffalo last year -- could allow him to carve out a much larger role than expected on a Toronto roster that lacks full-time starters at second base and third base.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Looks good for roster spot

    Clement appears to have won a spot on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster following the trade of Santiago Espinal to the Reds on Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Clement was likely in the lead for an infield utility role anyway, but shipping out Espinal clarifies the roster picture for Toronto. The 27-year-old has been stunningly productive this spring, batting .375 (15-for-40) with three homers, two triples, two steals and only one strikeout, but his career .231/.279/.299 slash line through 364 big-league plate appearances is probably a better reflection of his fantasy appeal. It's also not clear just how much playing time Clement will get given that the Jays already have a number of players with versatile defensive portfolios, including Cavan Biggio and Isiah Kiner-Falefa, but Espinal faced similar competition in 2023 and still saw 254 PAs over 93 games.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Continues raking in camp

    Clement 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

    The 27-year-old launched a two-run homer off Zach Eflin in the second inning before singling home another run off the Tampa right-hander in the third. Clement came into camp with a decent chance of winning the final spot on the Toronto bench due to the fact that he was out of minor-league options, but he's backed that up with a scorching spring that's seen him hit .400 (10-for-25) through nine games with a triple and two homers. Perhaps more impressively, he hasn't struck out once in 26 plate appearances. The Blue Jays have unsettled situations at both second base and third base, and if Clement carries his hot stick into the regular season, he could push his way into playing time at both spots.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Making case for bench spot

    Clement has emerged as a favorite to win a utility job on the Blue Jays' bench, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    The 27-year-old infielder has a modest .578 OPS through 364 career big-league plate appearances, but he's out of minor-league options and has gone 5-for-13 (.385) with a triple and a stolen base through five Grapefruit League games. Clement's main competition appears to be Santiago Espinal and veteran non-roster invitee Eduardo Escobar, but the former can be optioned to Triple-A and the latter is flailing at the plate, going 0-for-15 with eight strikeouts this spring.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Sent down to Triple-A

    Clement was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Cam Eden is coming up to absorb Clement's spot on the Blue Jays' roster. Clement boasts an .885 OPS in 52 plate appearances in the majors this season, but his opportunities have been few and far between.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Moves into utility role

    Clement is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

    Though he drew the start at shortstop in Wednesday's 10-0 loss to Texas, Clement has moved back into a utility role since Bo Bichette was reinstated from the 10-day injured list last Friday. Clement is now on the bench for the third time in four games and is expected to see few opportunities moving forward now that Toronto has recently welcomed both of its regular starters on the left side of the infield (Bichette and Matt Chapman) back from the IL.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Extends hitting streak to three

    Clement went 1-for-3 with a single and a run scored in Saturday's 8-7 loss to the Rockies.

    Clement committed two errors in the field, but he was able to produce at the plate once again Saturday after he providing a home run and a triple in Friday's series-opening win. The 27-year-old will receive the starting nod at shortstop and will bat seventh Sunday, but his run as the Blue Jays' primary option at the position could end as soon as next Friday, when Bo Bichette (quadricep) could be ready to return from the 10-day injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Nabs third straight start

    Clement will start at shortstop and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

    He'll man shortstop for the third game in a row after going 2-for-7 at the dish between the first two contests of the series with Washington. The Blue Jays seem content to go with Clement as their primary option at shortstop until Bo Bichette (quadricep) is cleared to return from the 10-day injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Returns to majors

    Clement was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.

    The 27-year-old utility man will provide some infield depth while Matt Chapman (finger) is on the 10-day injured list and while Bo Bichette (quadricep) is day-to-day. Clement has a career .542 OPS over parts of three big-league seasons.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Optioned back to Triple-A

    Toronto optioned Clement to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

    Clement drew only one plate appearance during his brief stay on the Blue Jays' major-league roster. The 27-year-old infielder has posted an excellent .352/.417/.543 slash line in 52 games this season at the Triple-A level.
