 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Roger Clemens appeared set to make his 2007 major league debut Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates after throwing 54 pitches during batting practice at the New York Yankees' minor league complex.
The seven-time Cy Young Award winner made 21 throws in the outfield and eight warmup tosses Wednesday before his 20-minute batting practice session against players from the Yankees' extended spring training team.
Clemens also took part in a short fielding session before jogging around the area outside the complex.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman arrived about 40 minutes after Clemens finished throwing and the pair talked inside the facility.
The 44-year-old right-hander originally planned to start Monday night at the Chicago White Sox. He scratched himself from the outing last Saturday because of what the Yankees said then was a ``fatigued'' groin, an injury he first felt during a minor league outing May 28. An MRI exam Monday showed Clemens had a scar tissue injury in the right groin.
If Clemens is added to the major league roster on Saturday, he would earn $17,442,637 this season and cost the Yankees $6,977,054 in luxury tax, a total of $24,419,691. Clemens agreed May 6 to a one-year contract worth $28,000,022 - the last two digits matching his uniform number - but only gets paid his major league salary once he is on the big league roster.
