For those of you closely following the Rocket saga, you're in luck! You might get some action this coming weekend.
The New York Yankees are crossing their fingers in hopes that Roger Clemens will be able to make his first start this coming Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Clemens pitched six scoreless innings for the AAA Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees last Monday and appeared on the verge of rejoining the Bronx Bombers, who are 10.5 games behind the AL East-leading nemesis Boston Red Sox.
However, as he was scheduled to make his first start today against the Chicago White Sox, Rocket was scratched with "right groin fatigue" which he reported Saturday. The 44-year-old veteran will have an MRI today before the club makes any official decisions on his return.
