Angels expect Madson to start throwing again soon


TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Angels expect Ryan Madson to restart his throwing program by early next week, perhaps as early as Monday, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said prior to Saturday's workout.

At that point, the Angels can get a better feel for Madson, who threw his fourth and final bullpen session on Feb. 1 and was shut down after feeling some uncommon soreness in his right elbow. An MRI on Tuesday came back clean, though, and the 32-year-old right-hander still has a chance to get in Spring Training games by early March, which could have him pitching in the Majors by mid-April.

Scioscia said Madson, on a strengthening program the last few days, will not need another MRI before he starts to throw again.
