Yesterday the Angels and Jason Isringhausen agreed to a minor-league contract and Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that the deal is worth between $700,000 and $1 million in guaranteed money if he cracks the Opening Day roster.
DiGiovanna and other reporters covering the Angels seem to think that’s likely, and general manager Jerry Dipoto indicated that he views Isringhausen as a setup option more so than a potential middle reliever.
In other words, expect the 39-year-old right-hander to make the team, collect his $700,000-$1 million, and also perhaps tack on some additional money with incentives based on appearances.
Last season for the Mets he logged 47 innings with a 4.05 ERA and 44/24 K/BB ratio after not pitching in the majors at all in 2010.
