Toronto Blue Jays prospect Kacy Clemens, son of former Major League Baseball star Roger Clemens, is suing a Houston bar for injuries suffered during a New Year’s Eve party.
Noah Bressner of the New York Post reported that, Clemens and Conner Capel filed a lawsuit against the Concrete Cowboy after Capel suffered a fractured skull and Clemens’ right arm was injured after allegedly being assaulted by bouncer Nicholas Estrada-Johnson. Also noted, Estrada-Johnson was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault in relation to the injuries suffered by Capel.
Attorney Randy Sorrels said the alleged attack occurred when a bouncer told Clemens and Capel to move to another area in the bar after they tried to order drinks.
After they moved back, the bouncer grabbed Capel and began “hitting him and threw both of them out of the bar.”
Sorrels noted Clemens’ “throwing arm is one of the things we’re concerned about” after he had visible injuries.
The Blue Jays selected Clemens in the eighth round of the 2017 draft. The 24-year-old hit .231/.331/.375 in 122 games across two levels last season.
Capel is an outfielder in the St. Louis Cardinals’ farm system. He was originally drafted in the fifth round by the Cleveland Indians in 2016. The 21-year-old posted a .257/.341/.376 in 118 games over two levels in 2018 according to Bleacher Report.
