Astros' Tony Sipp: Gets big outs before walk-off loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp struck out both batters faced in the eighth inning of Sunday's 6-5 loss to Boston.

Sipp entered with the bases loaded and benefited from the largesse of the home-plate umpire's expanded strike zone to strike out Blake Swihart and Christian Vazquez to end the threat. The left-handed reliever has returned to form in 2018 following two wayward seasons in which he posted a combined 5.33 ERA. He's getting both sides of the plate out, limiting left-handed hitters to a .585 OPS and righties to .665.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Mops up Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp struck out all three batters faced in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Tigers.

Sipp came on for mop-up duty, entering in the ninth inning and delivered his sixth consecutive scoreless outing. He doesn't get too many high-leverage appearances, but the left-hander has executed when called on. The scoreless frame lowered his ERA to 1.93.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Extends scoreless inning streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp (2-0) walked one in a scoreless seventh inning and picked up the win Sunday against the Royals.

In an ironic twist, the left-handed Sipp dispatched the three right-handed batters he faced while walking the lone lefty. Entering the contest, lefties had a .100 OPS off him while righties were at .953, although lately, it doesn't matter who's coming to the plate. Sunday's performance was his 12th consecutive scoreless appearance, a stretch in which he's allowed five hits and three walks while striking out 10 over 9.1 innings. His ERA is a tidy 2.16, which stands in contrast to the combined 5.33 he posted in 2016 and 2017.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Comes through in low-leverage role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp has nine consecutive scoreless outings and a 2.84 ERA over 16 games this season.

Since signing a three-year deal following the 2015 season, Sipp has been an unreliable reliever. Both Sipp and manager A.J. Hinch told Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle that the left-hander's downfall can be traced to losing the feel for his splitter. That's forced Hinch to deploy the 35-year-old in low-leverage situations. However, an unintended consequence of losing the split for a while has been the development of a slider. He's allowed one hit off that pitch, which Sipp says "has been really significant against lefties." Left-handed hitters are batting just .087 against him. Sipp earned that three-year deal because of his effectiveness against lefties, and he may have earned an opportunity to face lefties in a high-leverage situations.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Comes off DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sipp (oblique) was activated off the disabled list Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Sipp was in uniform and available, but did not pitch in Wednesday's game at Seattle. He returns to become the lone left-hander in the bullpen after dealing with soreness in his right oblique. Prior to the injury, he allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out two over 2.1 innings.
