Roger Clemens’ widely anticipated perjury trial has been delayed until July, as the judge granted the defense more time to review the mountains of evidence presented by the prosecution. 

Federal investigators reportedly said that the case has generated over 54,000 pages of evidence, and Clemens’ lawyer, Rusty Hardin, said his team needs more time to review the evidence and have the scientific evidence analyzed by a forensics expert. 

Clemens pled not guilty to the perjury charges on August 30, and the former fireballer has constantly and vehemently denied using steroids. 

The Rocket amassed 354 wins, 4,672 strikeouts and seven Cy Young awards in 23 seasons, and were it not for the allegations against him, would be a lock as a first ballot Hall of Fame selection. 

However, the Congressional testimony of former Yankees trainer Brian McNamee and Clemens’ former teammate and friend Andy Pettitte have cast serious doubt on the legitimacy of the final seasons of Clemens’ career. 

Roger faces six counts in all: three of making false statements, two of perjury and one of obstruction of Congress, and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
