TAMPA -- The Yankees' Roger Clemens, on the disabled list with a strained groin, threw 92 pitches in a rehabilitation start for Class A Tampa on Saturday at Legends Field.

"I didn't have any setbacks," Clemens said. "I didn't have any of the sensation of pain I had in my last two starts."

He gave up three runs and five hits in five innings, striking out six.

"In my last inning and a half, I tried to pick up the pace a little bit," Clemens said. "I'll know a little bit more (today). As long as I am not sore, it will be a big, big plus."

Yankees manager Joe Torre said he hadn't decided when Clemens will be activated.

Meanwhile, Sterling Hitchcock, out with a sore lower back, pitched a perfect inning during his final rehab start in a Gulf Coast League game.

He could return from the 15-day DL today.
