Rogers Clemens' Workout Watched By Houston Astros Management

Not only is Roger Clemens going to pitch for the minor-league Sugar Land Skeeters this weekend, Houston Astros scouting director Mike Elias watched him work out at Constellation Field on Monday morning.

He was there alongside ex-Astros president and Skeeters adviser Tal Smith and Skeeters president Matt O'Brien, according to Zachary Levine and the Houston Chronicle. This fuels speculation that the Astros could bring Clemens back to the big leagues, but Houston owner Jim Crane isn't saying much on the matter just yet:

Regarding the possibility that Clemens could rejoin the Astros, Crane said, "We don't have any plans, we haven't had any requests. We'd like to check and see where (Major League Baseball) is on the subject matter before we would do anything."

Clemens will pitch for the Skeeters on Saturday against the Bridgeport Bluefish. If he does come back to the major leagues, it will push his Hall of Fame eligibility back to 2018.
