Matthew Paul Clement (born August 12, 1974, in Butler Township, Pennsylvania) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. Clement played for the San Diego Padres (1998-2000), Florida Marlins (2001), Chicago Cubs (2002-2004) and Boston Red Sox (2005-2006). While on the Red Sox active roster, he was injured all of the 2007 season. He batted and threw right-handed.

Clement had a sinking fastball in the low 90s and a hard slider he mixed with a four-seamer and a changeup. He held opposing batters to a .233 batting average from 2002-05, while posting a 47-42 record and a 3.99 ERA.

In June 2004, Clement was 6-2 and a candidate to be named to the All-Star Game. But in his next six starts before the break, Clement went 0-4, despite a 2.15 ERA. His run support in those starts was just 1.19 runs per game. He finished with a 3.68 ERA but went 9-13 for the Cubs, who scored only 79 runs in his 30 starts (which is 2.63 runs of support per game, the sixth-lowest mark in the NL). Against American League teams in interleague play, Clement had a 7-7 record with a 3.60 ERA in 19 starts.
