    Washington Nationals Nats Sign Tony Sipp

    The Nationals have agreed to sign left-handed reliever Tony Sipp to a one-year, $1.25 million deal, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Sipp, 35, had a 1.86 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 38 2/3 innings last season. Only four of the 37 runners he inherited scored and he held opposing hitters to a .200/.272/.311 line.
    Of course, his 2017 season was a disaster (5.79 ERA, .507 slugging percentage allowed) and he wasn't very good in 2016. He was awesome in 2015, though. It's been a roller coaster.

    If the Nationals get the good version of Sipp, it's yet another under-the-radar move that beefs up their 2019 bullpen.
    Such a smart move.

    I like it, gives us a reliable lefty out the pen who’s not named Sammy Solis. Reliable I hope, that is. It’s like Anibal Sanchez, who knows what we will get

    Sipp has been pretty good for quite a while. Great move.
    Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans.

    You sure you know what you're getting from Anibal Sanchez? His stats are inconsistent over the years.

    I wouldn't use the word "awesome" necessarily but he wasn't all that bad.
