AP Sports Briefs
NEW YORK (AP) — Roger Clemens’ lawyers are investigating accusations in the Mitchell Report that say the star pitcher used steroids and human growth hormone.
Clemens was the biggest name in this month’s report by former Senate majority leader George Mitchell that detailed widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball. The seven-time Cy Young Award winner has repeatedly denied using steroids or HGH.
“On Roger’s behalf, we are investigating the allegations about him contained in the Mitchell Report,” Clemens’ attorney, Rusty Hardin, said in a statement. “To our surprise, we have identified several people who logic dictates the Mitchell team should have talked to but did not. That's troubling. We are asking questions and we encourage the news media to do the same.”
Clemens plans to be interviewed for an episode of CBS’ “60 Minutes” that is scheduled to air Jan. 6. The pitcher will be available to answer questions from other reporters that day in Texas, said Hardin’s spokesman, Joe Householder.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Mark Prior has a chance to revive his once-promising career with his hometown San Diego Padres in pitcher-friendly Petco Park.
The former ace agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract, making him the second postoperative pitcher to join the Padres in less than a month.
Prior’s career has been sidetracked by various injuries. He missed the 2007 season with the Chicago Cubs after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder April 24. He last pitched in 2006, going 1-6 with a 7.21 ERA while being limited to nine starts because of shoulder pain.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Bruce Boudreau became the Washington Capitals’ coach when the team dropped the “interim” tag from his title.
The announcement came hours before the Capitals beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 to improve to 8-5-3 under Boudreau, who took over for the fired Glen Hanlon on Thanksgiving Day.
