Photo Credit: Keith Allison/flickr.com/Creative Commons It was widely reported earlier today that Roger Clemens will make a comeback to baseball with the independent league Sugar Land Skeeters. However, more details are starting to emerge from the workout that landed him the gig, which Clemens reportedly hit 87MPH with his fastball. Apparently, the Sugar Land Skeeters weren’t the only team in attendance to watch the 50-year old pitch. According to Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Astros were also in attendance:
The Astros were present at Roger Clemens’ workout today. Scouting director Mike Elias saw him throw according to a source. — Zachary Levine (@zacharylevine) August 20, 2012  
  Furthermore, Ken Rosenthal, a well-respected MLB insider, was told by a Sugar Land executive, formerly of the aforementioned Astros, to not rule out a comeback for Clemens to the majors:
Tal Smith, former #Astros prez and current Sugar Land exec, said of potential big-league comeback by Clemens: “I wouldn’t put it past him.” — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) August 20, 2012  
Clemens has already pitched for the Houston Astros in his major league career, and with their abysmal record, a league-worst 39-83, a ticket-grabbing acquisition of Clemens can’t be ruled out.   By: Frank Santos- Sports-Kings Assistant Site Manager     The post Houston Astros Also Watched Roger Clemens’ Workout appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
