He will head from New York to Lexington, Kentucky, to work out for 7-10 days. That’s where his son is playing.

From there he will head to Tampa and start a minor-league assignment. He could be with the Yankees sometime in the first week of June.

Clemens received a record $28 million deal that will be prorated based on when he joins the Major League roster. The Yankees offered $25.5 million in spring training and wanted him then.

Clemens will receive the same travel privileges he had with the Astros. Brian Cashman and Joe Torre cleared this through the senior members of the team. Basically, with Randy Johnson gone, there was nobody who would oppose it.

The deal was made on Thursday night and finished off on Friday when the Steinbrenner family approved it.
