NEW YORK (AP) -Roger Clemens probably will make another minor league start before rejoining the New York Yankees.
Clemens struggled a bit Wednesday night, allowing three runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings for Double-A Trenton with four walks, five strikeouts, a hit batter and a wild pitch.
While a final decision won't be made until after a bullpen session Friday, there's a good chance the 44-year-old right-hander will start Monday at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre against Toledo, several Yankees officials said Thursday.
That would put the seven-time Cy Young Award winner on track to make his first start for the Yankees at Fenway Park on June 2 or 3 against the Boston Red Sox, his original team.
Clemens agreed to a $28,000,022, one-year contract on May 6 and made his first minor league start on May 18, giving up one run and in four innings for Class A Tampa. He threw 58 pitches in his first start and 102 in his second.
