Via FOX 26 Sports –
Sugar Land Skeeters president Matt O’Brien and Roger Clemens’ agent Randy Hendricks told FOX 26 Sports that Clemens worked out for the Skeeters today and will sign with the team.
Hendricks and O’Brien told FOX Clemens will start for the Skeeters this Saturday in Sugar Land.
Astros bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte, who is a close friend of Clemens, caught Clemens’ workout for the Skeeters.
“He’s in such great shape it’s ridiculous,” Bracamonte said. “He’s the same guy he was before.
“He is nasty. His split is good. He still has life. He was throwing in the high 80s.”
Bracamonte said Clemens went through his usual routine before throwing in game situations during the workout.
“He ran three miles, threw a bullpen and threw batting practice,” Bracamonte said. “He had a lot of movement on the ball. To me he is still the same.”
And, the Class of ’62 lives again!
