KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -- Roger Clemens' 10-year personal services contract with the Houston Astros could be affected by a possible perjury investigation into whether he lied to Congress about using steroids.

Astros owner Drayton McLane says he might reconsider in light of Clemens' legal issues. The deal kicks in when the star pitcher officially retires.

As it is, McLane isn't thrilled about the attention Clemens is drawing at the Astros' spring training camp. The seven-time Cy Young Award winner has been throwing batting practice to minor leaguers.

Clemens played for the Astros from 2004-06. He also worked out at Astros camp last season before deciding in May to play for the New York Yankees.

McLane says he'll wait before deciding if he'd want Clemens to play for the Astros again if the right-hander decided to make one more comeback.
