According to MLB.com beat writer Alden Gonzalez, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have inked veteran right-hander Jason Isringhausen to a minor league contract, giving the 39 year old a shot at making a big league squad out of training camp in 2012.
Isringhausen heard the cricket symphony instead of the phone ringing most of the offseason, attracting a surprisingly low amount of attention in free agency. He wasn't spectacular for the New York Mets last season, but he posted a respectable 4.05 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and a 44/24 K/BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings pitched last season.
Over his 14 year career Isringhausen has posted a 3.62 career ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 799 strikeouts and 300 saves. He's also spent time with the Mets (twice), A's, Cardinals, Rays, and Reds.
