ANAHEIM -- Prior to Saturday's game, Ryan Madson threw his first bullpen session in two weeks, and according to Angels manager Mike Scioscia, the session went well.

"It was terrific," Scioscia said. "He's very encouraged."

The last time Madson threw from a mound -- in a simulated game on April 19 -- he felt tightness immediately after and was shut down for two weeks, during which he went to extended spring training in Arizona and had scar tissue removed.

Following Saturday's session, the results were different, as the Angels already have a tentative date for the right-hander's next bullpen.

"I'm sure he'll probably get back on the mound on Tuesday," Scioscia said.
