Tyler Clippard is on the move again. Less than a month after being sent to Chicago by the Yankees, the White Sox have dealt the veteran reliever to the Astros. In return, the White Sox will receive a player to be named later or cash, plus the added bonus of a freed up roster spot.

At least Clippard managed to contribute something to Chicago during his brief time there, recording two saves and a 1.80 ERA over 12 appearances on the mound. The Astros will be taking on the $1.75M left of his deal.
