Roger Clemens pitches for the Skeeters again in a couple of days. He had a press conference about it this afternoon and said this:
He said he’s “just having fun,” is not looking past his next indy league start and is not doing this to push his Hall of Fame clock back.
He also said that his real name was Anastasia Romanov, daughter to the Czar.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.
Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”
Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
