Sugar Land Skeeters Roster Besides Roger Clemens

As I mentioned the other day, we're going to see Roger Clemens pitch for the independent minor league team, the Sugar Land Skeeters. Besides Roger Clemens, who is on this team? Here's some former major league players who are playing for the Skeeters. The Skeeters website lists the roster but doesn't give stats. These are all the guys on the team that I have scanned cards for.

2006 Upper Deck #211 Jason Lane
Jason Lane was a major league outfielder with a lifetime .241 average. He spent 6 years in the majors,  most of them with the Astros. He is now pitching for the Skeeters.

2010 Topps Heritage #384 Scott Kazmir
Kazmir was a 1st-round draft pick for the Mets and had a 66-61 record in 8 years with the Rays and the Angels. He was released by the Angels in June of 2011. The best former major league player (not counting Clemens) on the team.

2005 Donruss Team Heroes #145 Tim Redding

Another former Astro, he had a 21-28 record in 4 years. He last played in the majors in 2005.

2004 Donruss Team Heroes Autographs #230 Pedro Liriano
Threw 23.3 innings over two years for the Brewers and Phillies in 2004 and 2005. He's been in the minors ever since and pitched in Mexico last year.

2010 Topps Allen & Ginter #284 Dustin Richardson
 A rookie with the Red Sox in 2009 and washed out of the majors in 2010. At least he got a nice baseball card out of his major league career.

2009 Topps Update #261 Aaron Bates
Had a cup of coffee with the Red Sox in 2009 and has been in the minors ever since.
