The Rocket is worth $28 million just to teach the younger guys, nevermind actually pitching for the Yanks.
Roger Clemens made 47 throws during a seven-minute session in the outfield on Monday during his first workout at the New York Yankees’ minor league complex.
Clemens is scheduled for a bullpen session Tuesday. Barring any problems, he will make his first minor league start Friday night for Class-A Tampa and could be pitching for the Yankees during the last week of May or first few days of June.
The seven-time Cy Young Award winner spent 4 1/2 hours at the complex. He was on the field for 65 minutes doing running, agility work and fielding drills.
Clemens did not speak at length with reporters, When departing and reporters asked questions, all Clemens said about the workout was that it was “good.”
Clemens played catch with Phil Hughes, the promising rookie right-hander on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury. Clemens also spent 30 minutes standing on a mound discussing pitching mechanics with Hughes.
I’d love to hear of him helping Ian Kennedy, Joba Chamberlain and Dellin Betances as well.
