Isringhausen update

Reliever Jason Isringhausen had a throwing session for the Reds on Monday, but it remains to be seen if the club will sign the right-hander. Isringhausen threw for pitching coach Bryan Price in Arizona. He is seeking a Minor League contract with the club and an invite to Spring Training.

“[Price] said he threw good,” Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. “It went kind of like it did last year. We’re not sure if we will pursue it or not. We’ll discuss it in the next few days. We have quite a bit of right-handed pitching.”

Bryan Price called back and said this about Isringhausen, who threw 30-35 pitches.

“He threw the ball fine, well enough to feel optimistic that with a Spring Training to build his arm strength, he could get back to being productive again,” Price said. “That is if he can stay healthy, which is a top concern for anybody coming off an arm injury.”
