"We want him to play and we do want him to catch a little bit,'' Mariners manager John McLaren said after his team's fourth straight loss overall and eighth in a row at home. "We need some pop in our offense, so we're going to work him in.''
Clement wasn’t in the lineup Tuesday, but will become the Mariners’ majority catcher, potentially catching three or four times a week. Kenji Johjima will be catch some and serve as designated hitter, and McLaren said all pitcher-catcher combos—namely Erik Bedard’s preference to have backup Jamie Burke as his catcher—are done with.
“We don’t have any combinations anymore. The combinations are done. I’m tired of combinations,” McLaren said. “We’re just going to put the best team we think we can win and that’s that.”
