May 22 Manager Charlie Manuel said he does not intend to remove Madson from his closing role when Jose Contreras (elbow) and Brad Lidge (shoulder) come off the disabled list, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.YES!!!!
Madsen hhas been placed on the 15 day DL effective June 19. He will be eligible to return July 4.
But it doesn't mean he is coming back on July 4th. Charlie's most likely going to run with a Stutes/Bastardo combo in the 9th depending on whether it's more lefties or righties due up.
