Clemens heads home to rehab left hamstring

September 30, 2007|From the Associated Press

BALTIMORE -- Roger Clemens flew home to Texas on Friday, choosing to rehabilitate his bothersome left hamstring there rather than at the New York Yankees' training facility in Tampa, Fla.

Clemens missed his scheduled start at Tampa Bay on Tuesday and remained behind to condition the leg when the team flew north. Although Clemens said he was healthy enough to pitch, the Yankees decided not to have him pitch this week.

Now he's at home preparing for the postseason.

"Wherever Roger goes, he's got workout facilities for what he needs to do," New York manager Joe Torre said Friday before the Yankees faced the Orioles. "I talked to him and he said yesterday he really had an easier time getting loose coming in than he did the day before."

Clemens made the decision to leave Friday without working out.

Clemens is 6-6 with a 4.18 ERA in 18 games.
