Late in the season Jason Isringhausen said that he was leaning toward retirement. Jon Heyman reports, however, that he has decided to come back for another year and that three teams are interested in him at the moment.
He could be useful, I suppose. Despite 16 years and 1008 innings on the odometer, Isringhausen was at least moderately useful last season, throwing 46 innings with a 4.13 ERA. He walked a lot of guys, though, so one figures that any deal he gets won’t be a big one and won’t be for a late innings job.
