Izzy not expected back...

Dan Martin of the NY Post reports that the Mets don't expect Jason Isringhausen back.  The former All-Star closer had a commendable return to the bigs after injuries stifled his career.   

But even in returning it wasn't flawless as injuries and fatigue limited his abilities in the second half of the season.  

Even on a minor league deal I can't see Izzy breaking camp with the team and rem. last year he was reluctant to accept extended spring training.  So while the door will be left open it kinda makes sense that the two sides are moving in different directions...

“There probably isn’t a fit for him here,” another source said. “He’s been talking to other teams, and we think he’ll wind up elsewhere.” source NY Post
