It was widely reported earlier today that Roger Clemens will make a comeback to baseball with the independent league Sugar Land Skeeters. However, more details are starting to emerge from the workout that landed him the gig, which Clemens reportedly hit 87MPH with his fastball. Apparently, the Sugar Land Skeeters weren’t the only team in attendance to watch the 50-year old pitch. According to Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Astros were also in attendance:

 

Furthermore, Ken Rosenthal, a well-respected MLB insider, was told by a Sugar Land executive, formerly of the aforementioned Astros, to not rule out a comeback for Clemens to the majors:

Clemens has already pitched for the Houston Astros in his major league career, and with their abysmal record, a league-worst 39-83, a ticket-grabbing acquisition of Clemens can’t be ruled out.
