Angels ink reliever Ryan Madson to 1 year deal
Anaheim, CA - Jerry Dipoto made a move to shore up the Angels beleaguered bullpen adding right-handed pitcher Ryan Madson to the ballclub. The question is will Madson be physically able to handle a full season work load coming off of a missed 2012 season on the Reds disabled list with Tommy John surgery.
Dipoto must be satisfied that Madson will return to his 32 save, 2.37 ERA 2011 season form awarding Madson with a contract worth up to $3.5 million dollars.
The move allows Mike Scioscia to mix and match with Madson, Ernesto Frieri, Kevin Jepsen and Scott Downs in close game situations.
