Adios, Matt Clement. The St. Louis Cardinals signed the oft-injured starter today to a one-year contract with an option for 2009:
"Matt is a very talented pitcher who has been beset by injury the last few years," said Cardinals vice president/GM John Mozeliak. "Based on our findings from his rehabilitation last season and his recent physical, we feel that he can be a solid addition to our starting rotation and should have no limitations upon reporting to spring training."
Oh, how things looked so bright when we signed Clement. Now? Not. Good luck, Matt. I feel like we hardly knew you. But I don't think we'll ever forget that unfortunate day when you fielded that liner off of your head. I hope you can rebound.
