Astros reluctant to trade young starters, listening on Qualls, Sipp

If anyone's looking for the Astros to make up for their well-documented misstep at the amateur signing deadline by making a big splash at the trade deadline, well, it's probably not happening. Veteran starter Scott Feldman's $30 million, three-year contract probably precludes him from being seen as a key piece (as he was a key ago), and rival executives say the Astros...

Angels again hit bull's-eye against lefties in 7-6 win over Astros

Three left-handed pitchers in a row might have been an issue for the Angels last season. They were 18-26 against left-handers, and their .258 batting average against them was ninth in the American League in 2013. So far, 2014 is a different story. After going 1-1 against two left-handers on Wednesday and Thursday, the Angels faced Houston Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel on the...

Astros’ Tony Sipp Repeats Strange Feat, Pitches Twice In Same Game (Video)

Whatever the Houston Astros are paying Tony Sipp, they might want to give him a bonus after his uniquely busy week. Sipp made headlines last Monday night when manager Bo Porter pulled a rare move by sending the pitcher to the outfield in the middle of his relief appearance, only to bring him back to the mound just one batter later. Porter and Sipp were at it again on Sunday during...

Bo Porter’s unique managing helps the Astros get a win

What Bo Porter did in the eighth inning on Monday night wasn’t breaking new ground, but it *was* something that we don’t see too often. In the bottom of the eighth, lefty Tony Sipp started off the inning by striking out lefty Gerardo Parra. There was no chance in hell that Porter was going to let Sipp face right-hander Paul Goldschmidt next, especially given his insane splits...

Porter’s right field gamble with pitcher Sipp works out

There’s such a thing as being too cute. There’s no question that manager Bo Porter was cute on Monday when he had lefty reliever Tony Sipp play right field for one batter in the middle of an inning before returning to the mound. “I talked to him when he first came here and I watched him shag fly balls, he’s a power shagger,” Porter said. “So we’re completely comfortable...

Astros' Sipp plays right field between mowing down D-backs lefties

PHOENIX -- Left-hander Tony Sipp had appearance bonuses written into his contract with Houston this season. He must have seen Monday coming.

A former Diamondbacks reliever, Sipp  retired all three left-handed hitters he faced in the...

Astros belt trio of homers in win over Twins

The Astros bullpen was miserable until the second week of May, when it morphed into the best anywhere. It was an unexpected, and in many ways unrealistic transformation. The real ability of the Astros’ bullpen likely lies somewhere — well, you know. The relievers barely held on Friday in a 5-4 win over the Twins. ‘Stros starter Dallas Keuchel threw six shutout innings, another...

McHugh shuts out Royals as Astros’ winning streak hits four games

Watching from the bullpen as Collin McHugh threw seven scoreless innings while keeping the Kansas City Royals off-balanced with exceptional fastball command and a wicked curveball Tuesday night, Astros reliever Tony Sipp had a special appreciation for the righthander’s resurgence. Everybody loves a comeback story, and players like Sipp, McHugh and outfielder Alex Presley definitely...

Powered by Castro and Krauss homers, Astros beat Orioles in series finale

Tony Sipp said he didn’t feel all that great Sunday afternoon, which makes you wonder just how the other relievers have felt lately. The newest member of the Astros, Sipp’s not a complicated pitcher: fastball, slider, an occasional change-up. He’s a lefty, but he can handle righthanded batters too. He doesn’t believe in whining, and he knows this team needs some help. The...
