Tony Sipp RP HOU 11 Days

Sipp tossed a scoreless ninth inning against the Mariners on Wednesday to earn his fourth save of the season.

Sipp gave up an infield single to Robinson Cano with one out but then retired Kendrys Morales and Kyle Seager to nail down the win for Houston. The 31-year-old lefty has now recorded saves in three of his last five appearances, and with regular closer Chad Qualls battling a nagging hip injury, Sipp could see additional opportunities depending on the matchups.

Sipp earned his second save of the season Thursday, striking out two in a perfect frame against the Rangers.

Astros closer Chad Qualls was unavailable Thursday after pitching the previous two nights, so Sipp was called upon to preserve the 4-2 victory. The 31-year-old southpaw has been one of the most reliable members of the Houston bullpen this season, compiling a 3.21 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and a 51:14 K:BB over 42 innings.

Sipp was scooped up by the Astros in May after opting out of a minor league deal with the Padres and has gone on to post a 2.45 ERA and terrific 41/7 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 relief innings. Heyman lists the Angels, Braves and Orioles as possible fits for Sipp.

Astros signed LHP Tony Sipp to a one-year contract.

Sipp opted out of his minor league deal with the Padres on Thursday and quickly landed with a new team. The 30-year-old southpaw had a 4.30 ERA in 14 2/3 innings this season with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate in El Paso, Texas and probably won't fare too well in Houston.

A source tells Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish that Tony Sipp won't opt out of his minor league contract with the Padres.

Sipp's option to opt out of the deal ends Wednesday, so it appears he'll head to Triple-A El Paso as assigned. His next opt-out opportunity is on June 1, but the left-hander could leave for a major league role before then. Sipp had a 1.86 ERA over 10 2/3 innings this spring.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Tony Sipp is undecided on whether he'll opt out of his minor league contract with the Padres.

He can opt out on Wednesday after being reassigned to minor league camp Monday. Sipp impressed with a 1.86 ERA and 9/1 K/BB ratio over 10 2/3 innings this spring and would receive interest if he hits the open market. However, the Padres currently look set to go with one left-handed reliever on their Opening Day roster, so he might decide he'd be best off sticking around.

Tony Sipp continued his impressive Cactus League display, tossing 1 1/3 scoreless frames in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

The 29-year-old southpaw is in camp as a non-roster invitee, but has certainly earned a spot in the bullpen after posting a 1.86 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 9/1 K/BB ratio over 10 2/3 innings in the spring.
