Veteran left handed reliever Tony Sipp has cleared waivers after the Washington Nationals had recently DFA’d the streaky reliever.
This season in 36 appearances, Sipp has been pitching to a 4.71 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 21.0 innings pitched. The veteran has only given up one home run this season and has a 3.71 ERA with 531 strikeouts in 503.2 innings throughout his 11-year career.
Sipp had a career year with the Astros last season in which he owned a 1.86 ERA with 42 strikeouts in 38.2 innings pitched. The Mets and Phil Regan could and should take a shot with Sipp and see if a change of scenery along with extra work with Regan could turn things around for the lefty as well as the Mets’ pen.
