Isringhausen...

Postby Bennyy22 » Tue Apr 08, 2003 11:03 pm

Apr 8 Isringhausen did not report any problems after throwing in the bullpen on Sunday. The Cardinals' closer, who is on the disabled list as he continues to recover from offseason shoulder surgery, is scheduled to throw batting practice on Tuesday. The plan is to have Isringhausen pitch batting a few more times, before going to Triple-A Memphis on a rehab assignment. (StatsInc.)

i have him on my DL in my league, should i drop him?

04.08 Jason Isringhausen is scheduled to throw again today and likely will play in a couple of minor league games before being activated, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He should return from his sore shoulder within two weeks

I wouldn't drop him. As far as closers go, when healthy, he is among the best. He can get you a sub 1.00 WHIP, ERA under 3.00, and nice K totals. Izzy is a RP stud when healthy. Wait it out a couple weeks.

EDIT - Players go on re-hab assignments all the time, especially pitchers. It is usally a sign they are close to returning and are getting some game action in before facing major leaguers when it counts. The re-hab assignment is good news for Izzy.

Hey Benny. Baseball is a marathon not a sprint. No one has even played 10 games yet and you want to drop the closer from one of the best teams in the league. I wish I was playing in your league.

Benny, what would you gain from dropping him? If he is on your DL, he is not taking up a roster spot, I have rivera, hoffman, and Jeter all on the DL,a nd only two spots, so I am going to go with one less guy for a couple weeks till hoffman g ets back cause I dont want to drop anyone right now and am doing ok withone less guy. If you only have 1 DL spot and two DL guys and are absolutely getting your butt kicked, maybe. But like the others said, izzy should be back within a month and you would kick yourself for the other 18 weeks of the season if you dropped him and he went on to save 35 still. missing 4 weeks is really nothing in the course of the season. Hold in there.
