Called Kody Clemens: Roger Clemens’ son has been drafted into the Detroit Tigers roster

DETROIT, Michigan (KTRK) – Welcome to the show, Kody Clemens!

The youngest son of MLB legend Roger Clemens was called up to the Detroit Tigers roster ahead of the team’s game against Minnesota on Monday.

“Show time! Couldn’t be prouder of you, my son. You earned it at every turn. Congratulations, Kod, you’re a Big Leaguer!” The older Clemens posted this on Instagram.

Kody, 26, is a left-hander who plays infield and outfield in the Tigers’ farm system. ESPN reports that he received the call while Triple-A Toledo was taking the bus to Columbus for Monday night’s game. Clemens got off the bus and was on his way to Detroit.

The above video is from an April 2022 report on Kody’s father Roger Clemens accepting induction into the Houston Sports Hall of Fame.

Clemens, a former Texas Longhorn like his father, was a third-round pick in the 2018 MLB draft.

Kody was actually first drafted by Memorial High School in the 35th round of the 2015 amateur draft. The team that picked him back then? The Houston Astros.

But Kody chose to play college baseball instead.

He was added to the roster for the 2021 season but has yet to feature in a major league game.

To make room, the Tigers put outfielder Robbie Grossman on the injury list with a neck strain.

ESPN contributed to this report.
