Roger Clemens: No Further Pitching Plans

Former major-league pitcher Roger Clemens, now 50 years old, pitched 3⅓ innings for the independent Sugar Land Skeeters Saturday night, striking out two hitters and allowing no runs.

There’s been all kinds of speculation that Clemens might be bidding for a return to the major leagues, possibly with one of his former teams, the Astros, but the righthander says there aren’t even any plans for more games for the Skeeters:

Roger Clemens isn’t sure what the next step in baseball will be for him, but he says he has no further game appearances lineup up at the moment.

“Not at this point,” Clemens told the Houston Chronicle. “That could change in a couple days, but right now we haven’t talked to any of the guys or anything like that.”

Of course, any of that could change in a day or two. Clemens threw as fast as 87-88 MPH, which isn’t bad for a 50-year-old man who hasn’t pitched competitively in five years. A lot of teams could use a guy like that.

As always, we await developments.
