Indians purchased the contract of SS Ernie Clement.
Analysis: The move adds Clement to the 40-man roster and protects him from being selected in the Rule-5 draft. The 24-year-old was the team's fourth round pick from the 2017 draft class. He split the 2019 season between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus where he slashed .269/.323/.331 with one homer, 28 RBI and 17 stolen bases (in 27 attempts). He profiles as more of a utility-player rather than a solid regular at the big league level.
