Worth noting

• Roger Clemens, who's working as a special assistant to the general manager this year, returned to Astros camp Thursday for his second of three scheduled stints this spring and spoke to several pitchers after morning stretch.

• Catcher Max Stassi wrote on Twitter on Thursday morning that his surgery went well and that he was hoping to be ready for Opening Day. Stassi went to Philadelphia to be examined by Dr. William Meyers for a possible sports hernia. Stassi, acquired from the A's on Feb. 4, was held out of most spring drills with what was originally called a strained oblique.
