Clemens was drafted by the Astros in 2005 in the 8th round of the amateur draft, 254th overall. He was in the Astros minor league system from 2005 to 2011. Koby and Roger teamed up to play for the Atlantic League's Sugar Land Skeeters in 2012, with Koby at catcher. Koby would play two more seasons with the Skeeters, including 30 games in 2014.
