Roger Clemens' Son To Make MLB Debut

The Detroit Tigers have called up a very familiar name to the major leagues, as Clemens is getting his first call to The Show. As in Kody Clemens, as in the legendary (but non-Hall of Famer) Roger Clemens' son. 

The Tigers, according to reporter Jason Beck, practically hijacked their Triple-A club's bus, in order to nab Clemens' gear and ensure he gets to Detroit for tonight's game. 

Although Clemens was in a separate car, says Beck, his gear was on the Toledo team bus, which was on its way to Columbus. 

The Tigers were in desperate need of another body who can play the outfield, as they just placed Robbie Grossman on the injured list.  

Clemens is a versatile player, who can play 2B, 3B and RF. He hasn't been tearing up the minors since being drafted in the 3rd round in 2018 (.252 overall average over four seasons), but he is off to a nice start this year, hitting .283 with 8 HR and 31 RBIs. 

No doubt Clemens will be juiced to make his major league debut.
