Isringhausen set for elbow surgery News-Leader.com Springfield News-Leader: "St. Louis -- Jason Isringhausen, twice demoted from the St. Louis Cardinals' closer role last month before landing on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain, will have season-ending surgery next week."

4thebirds... Izzy is only delaying this surgery so that he can participate in Albert Pujols' golf outing. The delay will not create any known difficulties for the injured relief pitcher.

Izzy is expected to have plenty to time for recovery before next spring, but the procedure will end his 2008 season.
