The Sugar Land Skeeters have agreed to sign 50 year old and seven time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens, according to FOX26 in Houston.
Clemens worked out today and he reached 87 MPH on the radar gun. FOX26 also reports that Clemens will start for the Skeeters on Saturday against the Bridgeport Bluefish.
The Skeeters are based out of the Houston area where Clemens spent three years pitching for the Astros. The Skeeters are managed by former All-Star Gary Gaetti and the team has had former MLB players Scott Kazmir, Jason Lane, and Tim Redding play for them this season.
It is unknown whether Clemens is seriously considering coming back or if it is just a standard independent baseball league publicity stunt.
Earlier this summer, Clemens was acquitted on all charges of perjury when the Government claimed that he lied under oath about his steroid use. Clemens claims that he did not knowingly take steroids or HGH.
