Rotowire: Sep 14 / 2:40p ET
News: Sipp (oblique) returned to the mound Sunday, striking out the only batter he faced.
Impact: Sipp missed an extended period of time due to back and oblique issues, but he finally returned to the mound Sunday, and he should be good to go moving forward.
Rotowire: Sep 9 / 8:08p ET
News: Sipp (oblique) is set to rejoin the Astros this weekend, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Sipp came out of a Wednesday bullpen session feeling fine, so he will join the Astros for their next series in Los Angeles. It's not yet clear when Sipp will make his next appearance for the big club however.
Rotowire: Sep 4 / 2:21p ET
News: Sipp has a back/oblique concern and will go for further tests this weekend, the Houston Chronicle's Evan Drellich reports.
Impact: It sounds like Sipp won't be available Friday, and possibly through the rest of the weekend. The Astros have plenty of bullpen reinforcements after roster expansion so they should be able to manage without Sipp in the short term.
