Paul Clemens pitched well in a losing effort against the Yankees on Saturday, surrendering two runs (one earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 frames.

Clemens punched out four on the night while walking just one. The only damage against him came on an RBI single from Robinson Cano in the sixth inning, then Eduardo Nunez came around to score the would-be winning run on a passed ball later in the frame. The 25-year-old rookie right-hander wraps up his season with a 4-7 record, 5.40 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 49/26 K/BB ratio over 73 1/3 innings. He'll be a longshot to crack the Astros Opening Day rotation next season.

Paul Clemens allowed one run over six innings but was left with a no-decision against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Clemens was recalled on Tuesday and had a good showing, allowing four hits and two walks in his six innings. Still, the right-hander has an unsightly 5.81 ERA in 52 2/3 innings this season. We'll have to see a lot more good from the 25-year-old before we advocate him for fantasy purposes.

Astros recalled RHP Paul Clemens from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Clemens will come up to make the start Tuesday against the White Sox. The 25-year-old has a lousy 6.36 ERA over 30 relief appearances with the Astros this season and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
