The Detriot Tigers added infielder Kody Clemens to their active 40-man roster on Friday. Adding Clemens to the roster keeps him from being available to other teams in the upcoming Rule Five Draft.

Clemens was selected in the third round of the 2018 MLB draft after an All-American junior season at Texas.

His 2018 season was one of the best in Texas baseball history. Clemens won Big 12 player of the year, finished as a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award and led the Longhorns to the College World Series.

The former Longhorn batted .247 with 18 home runs and 97 RBIs last season in Triple-A. Clemens primary played second base and has proved to be an adequate defender.

According to mlb.com, Clemens is the No. 18 prospect in the Tigers’ organization. Detriot adding him to the 40-man roster shows they have him in their long-term plans.
