Royals deny interest in Roger Clemens
Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore laid to rest any rumours regarding his team and starting pitcher Roger Clemens, by saying that the Royals have no interest in the 50-year-old's services.
The speculation began when it was reported that the Royals' senior pitching advisor Bill Fischer, and independent league scout Ron Toenjes were present at Clemens' Saturday night appearance for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League.
"He wasn't sent there to scout the game," Moore told MLB.com. "He was sent there to be along with Fish, and that's all."
Moore continued to say that Fischer was Clemens' old pitching coach in Boston, and that he was merely invited to the game for friendly support.
Clemens pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out two while giving up one hit and two walks.
