Medium sized fish, tiny pond
You may have noticed Jeff Clement sees a lot of pitches. It’s something he’s always done, and on its own it’s not a sign that he’s a good or a bad hitter, but it is good that despite his struggles after being called up he hasn’t become dramatically more or less patient.
The interesting thing is that Clement, seeing over four pitches an at-bat, is by a fair margin the team leader right now among anyone seeing regular playing time. If nothing else, it’s a skill that’s certainly lacking in the rest of the lineup, and welcome.
