Roger Clemens: No MLB Return In 2012

The Roger Clemens saga takes a twist and turn every few days. Since we’re now past a holiday weekend, Tuesday seemed to be the appropriate day for a twist:

And a turn:

Clemens is scheduled to pitch for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League Saturday; there was much speculation that could lead to a signing by the Houston Astros for a start (or more) for them this month, possibly as early as September 12 against the Cubs. ESPN’s Jayson Stark wrote last week:

Astros players have told their buddies on other teams they think it’s already a “done deal” that Clemens will pitch in Houston once or twice this September. And an old friend of The Rocket told Rumblings that he is convinced Clemens is pointing toward the big leagues and “trying to find out what he’s got left.”

This story changes from day to day, so it would still be no surprise to see Clemens in a Houston uniform before the end of the year. Stay tuned.
