Jason Isringhausen Signs with Angels
A few days ago we asked “Where is Jason Isringhausen?”
Izzy signed a minor-league deal but is expected to have a significant role with the Major League club. Per manager Mike Scioscia:
“Jason is going to slot in with LaTroy Hawkins and Scott Downs [in a setup role],” Scioscia said. “We talk about that pyramid of guys getting to the closer [Jordan Walden]. It’s a little broader right now.”
After signing C.J. Wilson and Albert Pujols, the Angels didn’t have much payroll flexibility to fortify the back end of the bullpen. But, that became an opportunity for Jason Isringhausen, who perhaps because of his advanced age and injury history wasn’t getting much attention from other clubs this winter.
Good luck, Izzy!
