Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register has a small update on the status of Ryan Madson:

Madson said he is scheduled to throw on back-to-back days on Monday and Tuesday. He said he’s not sure how the progression will go this week, whether he’ll increase frequency or distance. So far he’s only thrown at 60 feet and the next step is 90, but he said there’s not much difference.

Madson underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last April and began feeling renewed discomfort in that elbow when he tried to ramp up his throwing program in early February. So the 32-year-old right-hander is taking it slowly this spring in Angels camp and might not be able to make a single appearance in a Cactus League game.

The Angels seem likely to turn back to Ernesto Frieri for early-season save opportunities.

Madson inked a one-year, $3.5 million free agent contract with Anaheim in November.

      Translation: I am unaware of the facts. I can’t spell. I don’t understand punctuation or grammar. I have very poor reading comprehension. I have no training in medicine. I don’t even know anything about this guy! And yet I still offer an opinion that I have pulled straight out my ass. Your [sic] welcome.

        I am not familiar with halohonk, but it sounds to me like he is a member of Al-Qaida
