Madison pitch two-thirds of an inning in the Royals 3-2 win over the Twins without allowing a base runner.
Fantasy Impact: Madson inherited a runner on second with one out and induced two fly-outs from the Twins to get out of the seventh unscathed. He has pitched well, but doesn't have a big enough role to be a fantasy option.

Madson pitched one and a third inning against the Mariners allowing no hits and picking up hist first win of the season.
Fantasy Impact: Madson came in during the fifth inning with two on and after one run scored on an error proceeded to put down the next four batters he faced to pick up the win. Despite his 1.82 ERA and eight holds, Madson blew his only two save opportunities on the year which limits his fantasy potential.

Fantasy Impact: Flynn has pitched 14 innings with 13 strikeouts and 2.57 ERA. Madson has pitched 9 innings with 6 strikeouts and 3.00 ERA. With 50+ career saves, Ryan Madson is the more interesting name for fantasy.
According to Royals' manager Ned Yost, Ryan Madson has been the most pleasant surprise of the big leaguers in camp. "You can see where if he stays healthy, he can help us" he said. (Source: Andy McCullough on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: In his last season before TJ surgery Ryan Madson recorded 46 saves. If he proves his health, he could be yet another weapon in the Royals' bullpen.
