Royals RP Ryan Madson overcomes the odds to thrive again
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ryan Madson believed the odds on his return to a big-league mound was one or two percent. So what he has accomplished this season is 100 percent amazing.

Tommy John surgery and failures that followed forced Madson into an early retirement. He had not pitched since 2011. The former lights-out closer for Philadelphia was done.

Madson was frustrated at not being able to dictate the terms of his departure from baseball, but he was content spending more time with his family than he had ever been able to do as a major league pitcher.

"There was always a small buzz that I could come back," Madson told the New York Times. "But I knew it was so far away. So much work had to be done. Even guys that retire and stay retired, they have that 1 or 2 percent that they want to go back and play. I don't know how many years that lasts. But I think I was in that category. I thought I was truly done."

Not so fast. Madson began teaching baseball fundamentals to young players, including a standout prospect near his California home. That led to a chance meeting with current Royals special assistant Jim Fregosi Jr., who once scouted Madson. One thing led to another and Madson earned a tryout with Kansas City. A strong spring training resulted in him snagging a spot in their bullpen.

He has taken his opportunity and run with it. In 17 appearances he boasts a 1.83 ERA, the best of his 10-year career. He has just four walks and 20 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings. And he has the admiration of his teammates.

"It really is remarkable what he's doing right now," said fellow pitcher Chris Young. "Granted, I never played with him, but I've played against him, and his stuff is as good as I've ever seen."

Ryan Madson, Franklin Morales, Paulo Orlando make Royals' roster
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Ryan Madson, Franklin Morales and Paulo Orlando earned the last two spots on the Royals' Opening Day roster. 

The RHP Madson was a non-roster invitee who earned a spot with his spring performance. Madson had a 3.00 ERA in nine games, with two saves. 

LHP Morales was also a non-roster invitee. He went 2-0 in the spring with a 6.55 ERA. 

Orlando, an outfielder, earned the last position player spot. 

To set the roster, the Royals sent LHP Brian Flynn to Omaha and placed LHP Tim Collins and RHP Luke Hochevar on the 15-day DL.

Royals considering eight-man bullpen
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Royals have yet to decide on the team's final 25-man roster and are deciding between carrying an extra position player or breaking camp with an eight-man bullpen, MLB.com reports.

Manager Ned Yost would prefer to carry another outfielder, with Paulo Orlando the most likely option to fill that role.

"Probably having the extra position player [helps me]," Yost said. "You're looking at pinch-running opportunities, defensive opportunities late in games. You're looking at whatever helps you get that one run you might need to win a game."

The team doesn't want to see pitcher Ryan Madson depart, but carrying him on the initial roster would almost certainly mean using an eight-man bullpen, as the Royals don't believe he's ready to assume full-time work.

"You would like to take him on your club," Yost said. "But I still feel like he needs to be protected. ... I've really liked what I've seen. But he hasn't pitched in three years. It's all a guess. Can he be that guy [again]? Yeah. But we haven't seen him in back-to-back games. How does he rebound? We don't know."

The Royals likely won't settle on a final roster until Sunday so they can appraise the moves other teams make over the next few days.

Brian Flynn will have tough time making Royals' staff
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Brian Flynn will have a tough time making the Major League roster, according to a report by the Kansas City Star.

Flynn had a 1.50 ERA in nine games this spring, and manager Ned Yost said he was one of the best pitchers in camp. However, the Royals would risk losing either Ryan Madson or Louis Coleman if they sent either of those pitchers down. Flynn still has options available.

Ryan Madson has opt-out with Royals but would consider AAA
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Ryan Madson confirmed to the Kansas City Star that he had a "gentleman's opt-out" clause in his contract with the Royals that would allow him to field offers from other teams, if the Royals try to send him down.

Madson said that he'd be willing to accept a demotion to Triple-A Omaha, if no other team offers him a Major League roster spot.
