This from the Associated Press:

Roger Clemens appeared set to make his 2007 major league debut Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates after throwing 54 pitches during batting practice at the New York Yankees’ minor league complex.

The seven-time Cy Young Award winner made 21 throws in the outfield and eight warmup tosses Wednesday before his 20-minute batting practice session against players from the Yankees’ extended spring training team.

Clemens also took part in a short fielding session before jogging around the area outside the complex.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman arrived about 40 minutes after Clemens finished throwing and the pair talked inside the facility.
