Knee irritation lands Clement on DL

Jenifer Langosch/MLB.com

The Pirates have placed first baseman Jeff Clement on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to Aug. 21) due to left knee irritation. At this point, the cause of the irritation isn’t known, though that will obviously be a point of discussion once the clubhouse opens later this afternoon.

Coming up in Clement’s place is left-hander Justin Thomas. This will mark the third time that Thomas has come up to Pittsburgh this season. So far, he’s 0-0 with a 6.23 ERA in seven appearances. Thomas, who gives the Pirates a second lefty in the bullpen, is expected to be in uniform for tonight’s game. The Pirates now have an eight-man bullpen.

Groat is heralded by several of the National League?s players and managers. My favorite quote is by Reds? manager Fred Hutchinson.
