SUGAR LAND, Texas (AP) -- Roger Clemens says his return to baseball with the Sugar Land Skeeters is to have some fun and the "wouldn't even consider thinking that far ahead" to a possible return to the major leagues.

The 50-year-old right-hander was introduced as the newest member of the independent Atlantic League team on Tuesday and he is expected to start for the minor league club on Saturday at home against Bridgeport.

He isn't committing to playing more than one game for the Skeeters, saying he wants to see how Saturday goes first.

Clemens, acquitted in June of charges he lied to Congress when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs, hasn't played for a team since pitching for the New York Yankees in 2007 at age 45.
