Ryan Madson is suffering from elbow irritation.
Madson hasn’t yet pitched in a game this spring. “He has a little irritation in his arm,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “The doctor looked at him today. Hopefully he will be all right in the next couple of days.” Madson, 31, posted a 2.37 ERA and 62/16 K/BB ratio in 60 2/3 innings last season with Philadelphia, saving 32 games in 34 chances. He is a top-10 closer in fantasy leagues.
