Isringhausen To Have Tommy John Surgery

Marc Lancaster of the Tampa Tribune reports that Jason Isringhausen will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. The surgery will end the 36-year-old's season and, possibly, his career. The Rays signed him last winter to contribute to a bullpen that had been surprisingly good in 2008. Isringhausen only pitched eight innings this year before going on the DL.

As Drew pointed out when we heard he was going on the 60-day DL, Izzy's 293 saves are enough to place him 22nd on the all-time list.
