Major League Baseball (MLB) Career

The New York Mets

Isringhausen was selected under the first-year player draft by the New York Mets in the 1991 MLB draft. He was eventually signed in the next year. Isringhausen along with fellow teammates Bill Pulsipher and Paul Wilson were touted as the next New York Mets’ sensational players labeled as the ‘Generation K’. In spite of some early bouts of injuries, Isringhausen started playing by the 1995 season- end wherein he registered a 9-2 record in some 14 stars.

However, this just turned out to be a small break from another round of serious injuries that now plagued Isringhausen. He contracted tuberculosis, then sustained a wrist fracture and on top of that had to undergo three surgeries right on the arm that he used for pitching. As a result, he was largely out of action for the whole of the 1997 and 1998 season.

The Oakland Athletics

In 1999 Isringhausen was traded over to the Oakland Athletics. Here he managed to enhance his game and perform much better than he had at the Mets. In fact, owing to his superior performance he managed to become a top closer for the team. Moreover, in 2000 he earned his very first place in the All-Star game.

 

The St. Louis Cardinals

In 2002 Isringhausen turned into a free agent and went over to the St. Louis Cardinals. During his time at the Cardinals, they swept up the American League (AL) Central Division four times (2002, 2004, 2005 and 2006). They also won the MLB World Series in 2006. In the 2004 season, Isringhausen set a franchise record with 47 saves which were broken only in 2015. The next year Isringhausen registered a 2.14 Earned Run Average (ERA) along with 39 saves.

However, he now had to confront his falling form but he still managed to end the 2006 season with a 4-8 record along with 33 saves. Unfortunately, he had to sit out the 2006 playoffs due to an injury to the hip which had to be operated upon twice. 2007 was a better season for Isringhausen as he registered a 4-0 record along with 2.48 ERA and 32 saves. In 2008 he exited the team as his elbow injury re-surfaced.

The Tampa Bay Rays

In February 2009 Isringhausen joined the Tampa Bay Rays under a Minor League contract. He was first listed under the disabled but then went on to play nine games before he ripped his ligament and had to sit out the entire season. He underwent what is called the Tommy John Surgery (TJS)- a type of grafting to reconstruct a torn ligament.

The Cincinnati Reds, Back to Mets and The Angels

In July 2010 Isringhausen played with the Reds. The very next year he returned to the Mets under a Minor League contract for Spring training. He played in the eighth inning where he managed to retire the two batters he was up against. This was also a historic moment because Isringhausen became the only player to pitch again after having undergone three Tommy John surgeries.

In February 2012 he went over to the Los Angeles Angels with a Minor League contract. He played 50 games for them and registered a 4.14 ERA.
Isringhausen is a celebrated player who was twice part of All-Star games, first in 2000 and later in 2005. He has also been initiated into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame.
