Angels Sign Jason Isringhausen

The Angels have signed Jason Isringhausen to a minor league contract, reports's Alden Gonzalez (on Twitter). Mike DiGiovanna of The Los Angeles Times says (on Twitter) that Izzy can become a free agent if he doesn't make the team since he has no interest in playing in Triple-A. The right-hander is a Beverly Hills Sports Council client.

Isringhausen, 39, appeared in 53 games for the Mets last season, pitching to a 4.05 ERA with 8.5 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9 in 46 2/3 innings. He saved seven games, including the 300th of his career. The Halos have been looking to strengthen their bullpen, and Izzy gives them some veteran, right-handed depth.

    I like this, nothing flashy but really can’t be any worse than Rodney.

    Like this too, will be a good person to battle for the last couple of bullpen spots and provide some veteran leadership.

    so the angels have 2 Izzy’s now?  crazy.

    I like the signing for the most part.  Can’t really hurt, just more veteran leadership to help the young guys.

    I was hoping he could come back to the Mets, but I’m glad he may have a shot at winning a championship.
