Roger Clemens Signs with Minor League Team; To Attempt MLB Comeback?!?

by at . Comments

Earlier this summer, Roger Clemens was found not guilty of lying to a grand jury over his alleged steroid use.

But the fireballer apparently is guilty of making like Brett Favre: no, he hasn't texted a photo of his penis to any young female employees. But he also doesn't know when to truly retire.

Clemens, 50, has actually signed with the Sugar Land (Texas) Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League and is expected to start for the minor league organization on Saturday.

Note to Roger Clemens: Stick to golf.

Agent Randy Hendricks hasn't said anything about his client attempting a Major League comeback if all goes well, but did say in a statement:

"His fastball was clocked at 87 mph; all of his pitches were working. He threw a three-inning simulated game after an extensive workout warm-up."

Clemens last pitched for the Yankees in 2007, finishing 6-6 with a 4.18 ERA. His 4,672 strikeouts rank third all-time and he was named to 11 All-Star Games.

He's also eligible for the Hall of Fame next year - barring a return to Major League Baseball - although voters are unlikely to vote for the man who most people believe took performance enhancing drugs for many years during the second half of his career.
