Clemens To Miss Scheduled Monday Start

The New York Yankees announced on Saturday, that Roger Clemens would not make his scheduled 2007 MLB debut, due to a sore groin. Yankees manager Joe Torre informed the media before his team's game against the Boston Red Sox Saturday afternoon. Torre said he suffered the injury during his last start for the Triple A Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees last Monday.

Clemens who is still in Houston will now miss the entire four game series against the Chicago White Sox which begins on Monday. Torre said the injury is not believed to be serious, but New York would rather err on the side of caution. Clemens who is 44 years old is someone the Yankees are counting on heavily if they want to regain any footing in the pennant race. After losing the game on Saturday, by a score of 11-6 New York is now 12.5 games behind Boston in the American League East.
