Tony Sipp released by Padres, signing with Astros


The Houston Astros may have just made another bullpen stabilizing, under-the-radar move.

Dennis Lin of UT San Diego reports that the Padres have granted left handed relief pitcher Tony Sipp his release and that the 30-year old will sign with the Houston Astros.

Sipp made 56 appearances for the Arizona Diamondbacks last season, pitching to a 3-2 record with a 4.78 ERA over 37.2 innings pitched.
