Angels | Ryan Madson increases intensity
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Ryan Madson (elbow) felt good enough to throw a 30-pitch, high-intensity bullpen session Thursday, April 11, after he threw a bullpen two days ago.
Fantasy Tip: This represents a significant step for Madson if he can continue on the schedule of throwing every two days with increased intensity. The next step will be for him to pitch in an extended spring game or a simulated game. It's unclear how the Angels will use him initially when he returns to game action, but we don't foresee him returning to a full-time closer role anytime soon. The Angels will likely ease him into less stressful late-inning situations before he even gets a shot at the ninth. Ernesto Frieri will continue to have value for the forseeable future.
