Astros' Tony Sipp: Could return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp (back) was feeling better Sunday and could pitch in Monday's game against the Cardinals, Brian McTaggart of the Astros' official site reports. The left-handed reliever was scratched from a scheduled appearance Saturday.

Sipp's condition was described as nothing more than "standard, end-of-camp back stiffness," per manager A.J. Hinch. Sipp, in the second year of a three-year, $18 mllion contract, is the only lefty in the pen to start the season, so he's a valuable piece.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Scratched Saturday with stiff back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp didn't pitch Saturday because of back stiffness, Brian McTaggart of the Astros' official site reports.

Manager A.J. Hinch said the stiffness developed Friday. The left-handed Sipp's been roughed up this spring, giving up eight hits and five walks in five innings.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Mixing in two-seamer this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp allowed a hit and two walks in two-thirds of an inning in Thursday's game against Washington.

The left-handed Sipp is coming off an atrocious season, one in which his HR rate spiked and same-sided hitter had an .894 OPS off him. It's important that Sipp becomes an effective reliever because he's the lone projected southpaw in the Houston pen. He told Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle that he believes his four-seam fastball doesn't move as much it used to when he was younger, so he's mixing in a two-seamer.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Lonely being left
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp is the lone MLB-proven left-hander in the Astros bullpen as the team enters spring training, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It was widely thought that Houston would acquire a left-handed reliever, either via free agency or a trade, but general manager Jeff Luhnow was never able to swing a deal. Less than two weeks until pitchers and catchers report, the other three lefties on the 40-man roster lack a track record in the major leagues. This might come back to hurt Houston. Sipp, an eight-year veteran entering his age-33 season, is coming off a career-worst season (4.95 ERA, 43.2 innings, 12 HR), so look for Houston to continue during the spring southpaw hunting season.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Allows run in relief effort
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sipp struck out the side during his lone inning of work Tuesday against the Pirates, although not before giving up a run on a solo homer from Gregory Polanco.

Sipp now has allowed six earned runs over six innings pitched in August and his ERA has jumped from 4.71 to 5.45 in that span. He has the second highest WHIP (1.64) on the team amongst pitchers who have appeared in at least 10 games and his 2.9 HR/9 makes him very unreliable from a fantasy perspective.
