TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Roger Clemens resumed his workouts at the New York Yankees' minor league complex, still aiming to make his 2007 debut Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The seven-time Cy Young Award winner threw in the outfield and briefly off a bullpen mound Tuesday, one day after an MRI exam showed a scar-tissue injury in his right groin. He also ran for 12 minutes during the 2-hour, 50-minute workout.
The Yankees said Clemens is to have a full-scale bullpen session Wednesday.
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.
Clemens played catch Tuesday for 11 minutes - making 52 throws - with injured pitcher Phil Hughes. He also threw about 15 pitches off a bullpen mound before a 20-minute period when he discussed working from the stretch with young pitchers. Hughes is still wearing a boot on his left foot after spraining his ankle while doing agility drills May 25.
Clemens didn't stop to talk with a reporter following the workout.
