Jason Isringhausen's comeback on hold with elbow injury

Aug 16, 2010, 7:10 PM EDT

Jason Isringhausen, who signed a minor league deal with the Reds last month after taking the first half of the season off, was placed on Triple-A Louisville’s DL Monday with a strained elbow.
It could mark the end of Isringhausen’s comeback, given that the Reds weren’t anywhere near calling him up. He had allowed seven runs — six earned — and walked seven over 5 2/3 innings for Louisville.
Isringhausen was trying to return after missing most of 2009 with elbow woes. He pitched just eight innings for the Rays last year, the last coming on June 13.

    The Isringhausen signing was just Walt Jocketty’s way of pushing some of his employer’s cash to one of “his guys”. After all, if you’re in a pennant race and attendance is up, you have to find some rabbit-hole into which to pour money so you can complain about being a “poor small-market team” all the time.

    No such problems with the Pirates I assume
