Just spoke to Mike Dougherty of The Journal News, who is covering the Yankees in the Bronx today. Roger Clemens threw 69 pitches in a simulated game in Tampa today, facing minor leaguers.
Assuming his left hamstring feels fine today when he gets to Cleveland, Clemens will start Game 3 in New York on Sunday.
There will be no word on the roster today. The Yankees are carrying a few extra pitchers and the final decisions will be made tomorrow.
I’m headed over to Jacobs Field now and will post a report later on the Indians.
