Madson back this week?
By Doug Mittler
Good news for the 14-24 Los Angeles Angels has been in limited supply, but there was some Monday night when reliever Ryan Madson pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning for Class A Inland Empire.
Madson, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, will make another rehab appearance on Wednesday. If all goes well, Madson could be activated from the disabled list later this week or over the weekend, reports MLB.com’s William Boor.
The Angels signed Madson with the intention of using him as a closer, but Ernesto Frieri has pitched well in that role, so Madson will likely be slotted into a setup role, at least for the time being.
