Ryan Madson RP LAA 7 Months

Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that the Phillies are unlikely to sign Ryan Madson.

They've been one of the clubs tracking Madson's progress, but the reliever wants a major league deal and Philly doesn't appear eager to give it to him. "Our reports were good when we saw him, so he's going to sign somewhere," general manager Ruben Amaro said. Madson was reportedly touching 93 mph during a workout last week.

Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports that the Nationals were one of the teams in attendance at Ryan Madson's throwing session Friday.

The Nationals came away impressed, as Madson reportedly touched 93 mph during the session. It is believed that about 15 teams were present, including the Red Sox. The Phillies have also expressed interest in a reunion. Madson should decide on a team soon, though he will likely have to settle for a minor league deal given his recent elbow issues.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports the Red Sox were one of the teams in attendance at Ryan Madson's throwing session Friday.

There were somewhere close to 15 teams in attendance, so the Red Sox weren't alone in their interest in Madson's recovery. The team is set at closer with Koji Uehara returning, so the team's interest in Madson would likely be as a setup man. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported the 33-year-old touched 93 mph during the most recent session, and he should have a job sooner than later.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Ryan Madson hit 93 mph during an audition for teams Friday.

Crasnick said there were "about 15 teams" in attendance and "multiple clubs" are expressing interest. Madson hasn't pitched in the majors since 2011 due to elbow problems, but it appears he's healthy at the moment. He could make for a nice gamble for someone.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that Ryan Madson will throw for scouts Friday in the Phoenix area.

Madson held a private workout for a team last week, but he remains unsigned. The 33-year-old hasn't pitched in the majors since 2011 due to elbow problems, but he makes for a fine gamble assuming he's finally healthy. The Phillies, Red Sox, and Royals are among the clubs who have been linked to Madson this offseason.

Ryan Madson held a private workout for a team Tuesday, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.

Crasnick also said the unnamed team is viewed as the frontrunner for the right-hander's services. Madson has a public workout scheduled for February 7 in Phoenix, an event several teams are expected to attend. Among those believed to have interest are the Phillies, Red Sox and Royals, and it's possible one of those is the aforementioned mystery team.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Phillies, Red Sox and Royals are among the clubs considering Ryan Madson.

Madson hasn't pitched since 2011 due to elbow issues but will audition for teams the first week of February. All three of the aforementioned squads have closers, as Madson will surely have to settle for a one-year "show me" deal and be used in a setup role. The 33-year-old posted a 2.37 ERA with 32 saves in 2011 in his last healthy season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox are among many teams who have recently scouted free agent reliever Ryan Madson.

Madson hasn't pitched in the majors since 2011, as he had Tommy John surgery in 2012 and sat out all of 2013 after suffering numerous setbacks. However, it's easy to understand why teams are monitoring his progress. No word on whether anything is imminent.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Ryan Madson has left the Boras Corporation and hired Damon Lapa and Scott Leventhal of All Bases Covered Management.

After missing all of 2012 following Tommy John surgery, Madson dealt with numerous setbacks in his recovery in 2013 and never threw a pitch for the Angels before being given his release in August. Two years after he nearly agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal with the Phillies, he may struggle to find a guaranteed contract.
