Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) is still throwing off the flat ground, not the mound as he tries to recover from his last setback after Tommy John surgery.
Insight: At this point there is no guarantee that Madson will return in 2013 and should not be taking up space on any rosters. Ernesto Frieri the man to have in the Angels' bullpen.
 
5/29/2013 2:50:00 PM
Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) had another setback in his return from Tommy John surgery and has been shut down indefinitely.

Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) will report to his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake Thursday. He said it will last "several weeks," according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Madson is still rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and has had several minor setbacks since spring training. Ernesto Frieri will likely hold onto the closer role even after Madson returns, but the right-hander eventually could return to the ninth inning.
 
5/14/2013 12:17:00 PM
Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) pitched a spotless ninth innings at High-A Inland Empire and could be with the Angels by the end of the week.
Insight: Ernesto Frieri is likely to hold onto the closer role, at least initially, but if Madson pitches as we know he can, he'll likely take over the back end at some point this season.

Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) could be activated from the DL by next week, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Madson will face hitters in extended spring training games on Thursday and Saturday and in minor league games next Monday and Wednesday. Ernesto Frieri is likely to hold onto the closer role at least initially.
 
5/7/2013 7:38:00 PM
Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) will face live hitters Thursday, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Madson's bullpen Tuesday went well and he could be activated about a week from Thursday. He's unlikely to regain the closer job in his first few appearances.
 
5/5/2013 4:46:00 PM
Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) could begin a rehab assignment this week, according to Kevin Baxter of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Madson threw his first bullpen session Saturday since having a minor procedure to remove scar tissue last week. The Angels were waiting to see how he would respond from the session, and it looks like he didn't have any issues. Madson could take the closer role from Ernesto Frieri soon after returning. Frieri has a 2.03 ERA, but he has walked 11 batters in 13 1/3 innings.
 
5/5/2013 11:57:00 AM
Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) threw a lengthy bullpen session Saturday morning, according to LATimes.com. It was Madson's first time on a mound in two weeks.
Insight: Madson had to have a minor procedure to remove scar tissue from his right elbow last week after feeling pain following his last bullpen session. The important thing for the Angels will be seeing how he responds Sunday.
 
5/3/2013 10:52:00 AM
Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) had surgery to remove scar tissue from his elbow this week, according to Angels.mlb.com.
Insight: Scar tissue usually tears off while a pitcher is throwing and rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, but that didn't happen for Madson and the tissue had to be manually removed. He has had several setbacks in his recovery, including feeling tightness after a simulated game two weeks ago. We'd be surprised if he returns before May ends.
 
4/20/2013 6:15:00 PM
Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) felt soreness after throwing a simulated game Friday, according to Ken Rosenthal.
Insight: Madson was targeting the end of this month for a return to action from Tommy John surgery, but this will set him back at least a few weeks. Ernesto Frieri should be owned in all leagues.

Insight: Madson threw off flat ground and then moved to the bullpen on Tuesday. He said today was the "closest I've felt to normal." The right-hander will face hitters in a few days. Ernesto Frieri has two saves this season, but Madson is expected to be the closer when he returns.

Description: Los Angeles Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) threw 15 pitches off a mound Wednesday afternoon. SOURCE: Alden Gonzalez, MLB.com

3/21/2013 8:34:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) threw 25 pitches in a bullpen session on Thursday, according to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Republic.
Insight: Madson had not thrown in the past week after experiencing tightness in his surgically-repaired elbow. If he has no setbacks, he'll throw another one Sunday. Ernesto Frieri is the favorite to open the season as the Angels' closer.
 
3/19/2013 1:45:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles Angels reliever Ryan Madson (elbow) continues to have trouble with the elbow, experiencing tightness, last Thursday.
Insight: Madson is slowly returning from Tommy John surgery last year and feeling soreness is certainly to be expected. At this point, however, fantasy owners should not expect Madson to step right in and be the Angels closer. If Ernesto Frieri handles the closing duties well, he could steal the job away from Madson for most of 2013.

2/25/2013 1:35:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles Angels reliever Ryan Madson threw off the mound on Monday.
Insight: The right-hander missed all of last season after having Tommy John surgery but he is expected to serve as the Angels' closer in 2013. However, fantasy owners who select Madson must handcuff Ernesto Frieri, as no one is sure Madson will be ready for Opening Day.
 
2/22/2013 4:28:00 PM
Description: Angels pitching coach Mike Butcher says it's unlikely that reliever Ryan Madson will be ready for Opening Day, according to an Orange County Register report.
Insight: Madson is still one or two weeks from getting on a mound. The right-hander missed all of last season after having Tommy John surgery but he is expected to serve as the Angels' closer in 2013. However, fantasy owners who select Madson must handcuff Ernesto Frieri.

Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson threw on flat ground Monday after the latest MRI came back clean, according to LA Times beat writer Mike DiGiovanna.
Insight: Madson is still one or two weeks from getting on a mound. The right-hander missed all of last season after having Tommy John surgery but he is expected to serve as the Angels' closer in 2013. However, fantasy owners who select Madson should handcuff Ernesto Frieri.
 
2/13/2013 6:51:00 PM
Description: Angels reliever Ryan Madson's MRI came back clean. He has been experiencing soreness in his pitching elbow. Madson will be re-evaluated in a week to see if he can start a throwing program. SOURCE: Alden Gonzalez, MLB.com
Insight: Madson had the MRI to determine if it was just typical soreness or something more in his elbow. The right-hander missed all of last season after having Tommy John surgery but he is expected to serve as the Angels' closer in 2013. Fantasy owners should be sure to grab Ernesto Frieri in drafts as a handcuff since Madson's health is no sure thing.
