The Houston Astros plan on having a scout watch Roger Clemens' next minor-league start on Sept. 7 fueling speculation that a return to the major leagues is possible, reports CBSSports.com. 

The strong speculation in baseball has been that if all goes reasonably well that night, Clemens will then pitch for the Astros five days later, on Sept. 12 against the Chicago Cubs.
