Free agent reliever Tony Sipp drawing some interest

1 Comment

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish is reporting that free agent reliever Tony Sipp is drawing interest from multiple teams, though the left-hander isn’t expected to reach an agreement with any of them soon.

Sipp, 30, spent the 2013 with the Diamondbacks after four seasons with the Indians. He posted a 4.78 ERA in 37.2 innings of work, striking out 42 and unintentionally walking 20. He showed a flash of potential in 2011, when he finished with a 3.03 ERA and a career-low 9.6 percent walk rate. If he can ever harness his control, he still could be a useful bullpen piece at a cheap price.

Sipp was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on November 20.
