Profile: Clemens seems to be the front-runner for the last spot in San Diego's rotation, but his poor strikeout and walk numbers make him an unappealing fantasy option. He holds a 6.27 strikeouts per nine and 2.72 walks per nine through 169.1 major league innings, with a bad earned run average (4.89) that is still outperforming his peripherals. The 29-year-old pitched reasonably well on the surface in his 60+ innings in a Padres uniform last year, although again, his peripherals suggest his ERA could have been at least a full run higher.

The Quick Opinion: Even in an NL-only league, I just can't see myself using a roster spot on Clemens. Being replacement level is probably his ceiling.
