Houston Astros owner Jim Crane is ready for Roger Clemens to rejoin his organization.
Clemens, who was acquitted on Monday of all charges that he lied to Congress in denying that he used performance-enhancing substances, has a contract with the Astros organization to be one of the club's special assistants to the general manager.
Crane told FOX 26 Sports he may call Clemens as soon as Tuesday to check in with him about what's next in his future.
"Certainly he's still on a contract with us, that we want to try to give him a call (Tuesday) or as soon as he's ready to receive a call, and see if he has any interest in working further with us and getting back in the mix," Crane said.
"I think it would be great for the team and certainly having Roger do more with us would be a big plus for the Astros."
Crane said he is happy that Clemens was acquitted of all charges that he lied to Congress.
"He went through a very tough time in dealing with that and got a great result and we're happy for him," Crane said.
"I'm sure at some point he'll want to get back in baseball and we'd love that to be with us."
