Clemens was Houston’s eighth-round pick in 2005 and has never been considered a top prospect, but did put up some big numbers in the low minors. He hit .345 with 22 homers, 45 doubles, and 121 RBIs in 116 games at high Single-A in 2009, but hasn’t done much since leaving the notoriously hitter-friendly California League for tougher competition.
Last season he split time between first base and third base at Triple-A, hitting .234 with 16 homers and a .756 OPS in 126 games at age 24, and then was banned from playing winter ball in Puerto Rico after leaving his team without notice.
Koby is unlikely to reach the majors, but Roger won back-to-back Cy Young awards for the Blue Jays in 1997 and 1998 before they traded him to the Yankees for David Wells.
