Angels | Ryan Madson confident

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Ryan Madson (elbow) is very confident that he should be able to join the team's bullpen before next month. He threw all three of his pitches with conviction during his bullpen session Tuesday, April 16, and didn't have any pain or setbacks. Manager Mike Scioscia said he'll give Madson a couple of outings to get his feet wet when he returns before moving him to the later innings and a more prominent role.

Fantasy Tip: Health is one thing, effectiveness will be another for Madson when he returns to the majors. Pitch location is often a problem for pitchers when they return from Tommy John surgery initially, so keep that in mind with Madson. Regardless, he should be owned in all leagues for when/if he replaces Ernesto Frieri in the ninth inning of games.
