The Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox have agreed to a deal that will send veteran reliever Tyler Clippard to Houston, per Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
The Astros have suddenly bolstered their bullpen, by acquiring the eight-year veteran reliever. Clippard joined the south side of Chicago, from the Bronx, nearly three weeks ago, and is once again packing his bags. The Astros currently sit 72-45, and have a steady 12 game lead over the second place Los Angeles Angels for first place in the American League West division.
Clippard, 32, has had his ups and downs this season with the White Sox and Yankees. In 51 relief appearances, Clippard has a record of 2-6, with a 4.27 ERA. The two-time all-star has an impressive 10.5 K/9 ratio, this season.
Clippard will elect free agency this offseason.
The White Sox will receive a player to be named later or cash considerations.
