Reds | Ryan Madson declines option, might return
Cincinnati Reds RP Ryan Madson declined a mutual contract option for 2013, making him a free agent. Madson had a $6 million salary this year, of which $2 million was deferred until Thursday, Nov. 1, and another $2 million until Nov. 1, 2013. He agreed to that deal in January after a $44 million, four-year deal to stay with the Philadelphia Phillies collapsed last November. Madson would have made $11 million next year under the mutual option. Instead, he got a $2.5 million buyout. The Reds weren't going to exercise the 2013 option. They've expressed an interest in signing him to a less-expensive deal and giving him a chance to continue his recovery.
