TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Roger Clemens threw in the outfield Wednesday at the New York Yankees' minor league complex, one day after a 71-pitch bullpen session.
Clemens spent three hours at the complex in his third workout in Florida.
The seven-time Cy Young Award winner continued his teaching sessions with young pitchers, including top prospect Phil Hughes, and spent 40 minutes with a group on a bullpen mound. He threw briefly from in front of the mound and on the pitching rubber while demonstrating his mechanics.
Clemens, who didn't speak to reporters, will work out again Thursday at the complex to prepare for his first minor league start Friday for Class-A Tampa.
It's possible Clemens could join the Yankees after a scheduled start next week with Double-A Trenton. Just two starts in the minors would pit the 44-year-old against the Blue Jays on May 28 or 29. The next time through the rotation would have Clemens pitching at AL East-leading Boston on June 2 or 3.
Clemens agreed to a $28,000,022, one-year contract on May 6.
Notes: LHP Kei Igawa, sent to the minors on May 7 to work on mechanics, might make his first start for Class-A Tampa Saturday. ... RHP Jose Veras (elbow surgery) threw at 60-feet to a catcher on level ground.
