Angels | Ryan Madson throws bullpen

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Ryan Madson (elbow) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, March 27, and threw his last eight pitches at full intensity, according to manager Mike Scioscia. Madson also threw changeups for the first time off the mound. He's hoping to start a rehab assignment by mid-April.

Fantasy Tip: The best-case scenario is that Madson will return to the team in late April. Until then, Ernesto Frieri will serve as the club's closer. Expect Scioscia to give Madson frequent days off when he returns, too, so Frieri could see occasional save opps into May.
