Athletics' Ryan Madson: Agrees to three-year, $22 million deal with A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan Madson agreed to a three-year, $22 million deal with the Oakland Athletics on Sunday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.

After missing three years with an extreme UCL tear, Madson enjoyed a fantastic return year with the Royals, throwing 63.1 innings with a 2.13 ERA and 8.2 K/9. He had to deal with some dead arm in the latter stages of 2015, but a 0.75 ERA in September should dispel worries of post-rehab fatigue. He should immediately slot in as Oakland's top set-up man while Sean Doolittle remains the favorite to close, but that could quickly reverse if Doolittle struggles in Spring Training.

Ryan Madson snags save for Royals while Greg Holland rests
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A heavy workload for Greg Holland lately gave Ryan Madson a save opportunity Sunday against the White Sox.

No sweat.

Madson retired the side in order in a taut one-run game, fanning Carlos Sanchez and Giovany Soto to end it. It was his second save of the season.

Royals RP Ryan Madson records save on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals reliever Ryan Madson earned his first save since 2011 in Saturday's 7-6 extra-innings win over the White Sox. Madson came on and pitched a scoreless 13th inning to preserve the victory.

Madson is in the midst of a resurgent season in 2015, as he owns a 1.91 ERA in 40 games, after not pitching in the big leagues in three years. His last save came on September 26, 2011 as a member of the Phillies.

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."
