PARKS ON CLAVETTE - "Our plan is to move Renee into the outfield full-time this year, where she will compete for a spot in the starting lineup. We are looking for her to develop more consistency at the plate, but would also like to see her attack the ball more aggressively. As a natural lefty, Renee can be a valuable asset to our lineup."
