Athletics | Ryan Madson likely out a few days

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 16:05:28 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson said he feels fine physically Wednesday, June 29, but he expects to be sore Thursday, June 30. He'll likely be unavailable for a few days.

Fantasy Tip: Madson tossed two innings but allowed four hits (two home runs) and three earned runs for his 15th save of the year Tuesday night. He doesn't have any specific injury but will likely be rested after his first multi-inning outing this year. Sean Doolittle could be called upon for a save with Madson being rested.

Athletics | Ryan Madson picks up save

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 05:40:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, June 24, to pick up his 14th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Madson has not received many save chances this month but has not allowed a run in his last four appearances. He should keep the starting job for the time being and should be a fine starting option in most leagues.

Athletics | Ryan Madson collects first save in June

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:34:11 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, June 21, to preserve a 5-3 win and record his 13th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Incredibly, Madson's last save came on May 30, so he went three full weeks without one. To be fair, this was only his seventh appearance in June, so the A's haven't been giving him loads of chances. While he's on the low end of major-league closers, Madson holds value as long as he holds down the ninth inning; still, you might do well to listen to any reasonable trade offers.

Athletics | Ryan Madson blows save, gets win

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 22:39:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson gave up the game-tying run in 1 1/3 innings on Friday, June 17, but picked up his third victory of the year when the A's plated the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

Fantasy Tip: After starting the year 11-for-12 in save chances, Madson has converted just one of his last four -- he also picked up an "L" on June 4 after entering a tied game in extra innings. You have to wonder how much more the A's will put up with, especially with Sean Doolittle available. If you have a roster spot, now might be a good time to stash Doolittle in case they make a move.

Athletics | Ryan Madson out as closer?

Sun, 29 May 2016 17:08:22 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson was used in the eighth inning against the Detroit Tigers Sunday, May 29, and he struck out one in a scoreless inning. RP Sean Doolittle picked up the save.

Fantasy Tip: Madson blew two of his last three save chances, and he may have cost himself the closer's role. He is worth holding on to for now, but grab Doolittle if he is still available in your league.

Athletics | Ryan Madson blows save

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:27:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson blew the save Tuesday, May 24, allowing a two-run homer in two-thirds of an inning.

Fantasy Tip: He has blown his last two save chances after converting his first 11. His WHIP is up to 1.33, and his ERA is 2.66. If he doesn't turn it around soon, Sean Doolittle could push for his old gig back.

Athletics | Ryan Madson blows save Tuesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 21:09:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson blew his first save of the season by allowing a home run to Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond Tuesday, May 17. The A's won the game in the bottom of the ninth, though, giving Madson the victory. Madson's ERA on the season is now 1.93.

Fantasy Tip: Madson has been very good for the A's in the ninth-inning role this year, so this gaffe is unlikely to get him booted from the role. It'll take more struggles. Sean Doolittle and John Axford could see some opportunities to close out games if Madson falters more, but that could be a ways off.

Athletics | Ryan Madson getting the job done

Mon, 16 May 2016 23:23:27 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson recorded his 11th save in as many chances Monday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: He has a 1.02 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and 13 K's in 17 2/3 innings. The strikeouts will keep him from being an upper-echelon reliever, but he's a very good RP2 right now.

Athletics | Another save for Ryan Madson

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 16:23:57 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson picked up his fourth save in as many chances, allowing one hits in a scoreless ninth inning in a 3-2 win over the Kansas City Royals Sunday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: You can hang on to Sean Doolittle in deeper mixed and AL-only formats, but Madson looks to be the primary closer in Oakland until further notice.

Athletics | Ryan Madson picks up another save

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 05:52:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Seattle Mariners Friday, April 8, to pick up his second save of the season. He struck out two batters during his outing.

Fantasy Tip: Madson has two saves so far this season, but it is not known if he will be the closer moving forward or if he will share time with Sean Doolittle. Owners in mixed leagues could consider adding Madson if he is available because he should continue to see some save opportunities.
