Jason Isringhausen Plans To Pitch In 2012

Mets reliever Jason Isringhausen may be dealing with some late-season injuries these days, but he's still not ready to call it quits yet. The 39-year-old reliever told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York today that he expects to be pitching in the majors once again next year.

Isringhausen, a former closer with the A's and Cardinals, missed the entire 2010 season after pitching just 8 MLB innings in 2009, but he returned to the mound this season and ended up winning a job in New York's bullpen. He's made 53 appearances for the Mets this year, posting a 4.05 ERA over 46 innings. His overall numbers aren't great, especially the high walk rate, but some team will presumably give him a shot next year.
