KISSIMMEE, Florida -

Roger Clemens addressed pitchers and catchers of the Houston Astros on Wednesday morning, the day before the team is scheduled to work out for the first time.
    
Clemens is now a special assistant to general manager Jeff Luhnow who will work with the young Astros pitchers during spring training and the regular season.
    
A seven-time Cy Young Award winner, Clemens won 354 games over a 24-year career with the Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Astros. He last pitched in the major leagues in 2007 with the Yankees.
    
The Astros also announced that pitcher Jesse Crain has been set back by a strained right calf, and first baseman Japhet Amador will not report to the start of spring training because of a family emergency.
