 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -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.
Dressed in jeans and a yellow shirt, Clemens got out of his vehicle after the workout to sign autographs for about 15 people waiting near the player's parking lot.
It has not been determined whether Clemens will make two or three minor league starts before joining the Yankees' rotation. Clemens, who agreed to a $28,000,022, one-year contract on May 6, worked out last week in Lexington, Ky., where his son plays for a Houston Astros minor league club.
When he rejoined the Astros last year, Clemens agreed to a contract on May 31, made three minor league starts and returned to the majors on June 22.
Notes: Yankees LHP Kei Igawa, sent to the minors on May 7 to correct problems with his delivery, had a 19-pitch bullpen session after working on his mechanics. ... Former major league RHP Pete Walker, who is 38, has been working out at the Yankees' complex.
