Blue Jays interim report: Ernie Clement

Blue Jays interim report: Ernie Clement

Ernie Clement was signed as a minor league free agent before the start of last season. Last year he was up and down.

This year, he has been part of the Major League team since opening day.

Standard batting
G FATHER AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI S.B C.S BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+ GDP HBP SHE SF

Baseball Reference has him at a WAR of 1.1. Fangraphs at 0.4.

He played third, short, second, and left field, but most of his innings were at third. At the position, UZR has him at -5.2/150. Outs Above Average has him at -2.

He committed 6 errors at third base, good for an FA of .950, compared to the league average of .961.

He is hit every month:

April: .264/.286/.434.

May: .208/.225/.271.

June: .318/.333/.500.

If he could continue with the June numbers, we would be happy.

He hits lefties (.310/.344/.466) and much better righties (.230/.236/.356).

Like most (all?) of our batters, he wasn’t as good as we had hoped.

Opinion poll

For the first half I would give Ernie Clement a grade
