Sipp news

- I mentioned last week that left-hander Tony Sipp had not gone to the Dominican Republic as originally planned because the Indians completely shut him down for the rest of the offseason after he complained of some shoulder discomfort at the end of the season and in the early part of his offseason workouts. The severity of the injury is not known, but according to a baseball official I talked to over the past few days if the shoulder does not feel better by spring training Sipp may need to undergo surgery (again). No word on what the exact injury is, how it happened, or how serious it is, but this is concerning to say the least. Hopefully the rest fixes whatever is ailing Sipp as he is a very valuable piece to the bullpen for the Indians in 2008 and beyond. Until then, it is wait and pray mode where more will not be known about the situation until spring training.

that doesn't sound good at all. I was hoping we'd see him with the Tribe somewhere next season.

Another reason why another lefty would be a nice pickup for this team......may have just got even more thin in that department than we already were....

Dennys Reyes is still available right? He's strictly a lefty specialist, but he would complement Smith nicely.

He is and would be. I also like Shouse (old but still effective against lefties), reminds me a bit of Assenmacher.

I thought Shouse was signed already ... maybe I'm mistaken.
