KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -Roger Clemens will throw batting practice to minor leaguers this week at the Houston Astros' spring training camp.
Jimmy Stanton, director of media relations for the team, said Clemens is expected to show up at the minor-league complex Tuesday, but would not work with the players.
Clemens will throw Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, he said.
Clemens informed the Astros that he won't answer any questions from the media, Stanton said.
The Astros' minor leaguers opened a minicamp on Monday. Clemens' oldest son, Koby, is a catcher in the Astros' farm system.
Clemens, who pitched for the Astros from 2004-06, has a personal services contract with the Astros that will kick in when he officially retires. Clemens worked with minor leaguers at a minicamp at Minute Maid Park in late January that preceded spring training.
On Monday, the New York Times reported that House staffers have drafted a letter asking the Justice Department to investigate whether Clemens made false statements to Congress about steroids and performance-enhancing drugs.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held the Feb. 13 hearing at which personal trainer Brian McNamee repeated his allegations that he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone - and Clemens repeated his denials. Both men spoke under oath during depositions and at the hearing.
Koby Clemens, said Monday his father would be coming to spring training.
Koby Clemens did not speak to reporters when he arrived Tuesday for the second day of minicamp. He jogged into the minor league clubhouse after a team official came out and said he was late for a meeting.
