Ryan Madson earns first save of the season

Madson went an inning and a third only giving up one hit while fanning three batters.

Fantasy Impact

Madson was the preseason favourite to pick up the majority of the save chances; however has only had a couple appearances in the 9th. Unless you are in a deep league that values both saves in holds, you may be better suited to look else where for a closer option.

Ryan Madson finished with a save against the Angels

In a 4-1 victory over L.A. (AL) on Wednesday, Ryan Madson struck out one batter in one inning of work while collecting his 29th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Madson (who currently owns a 2.97 ERA this year) has been a steady closer for the A's and continues to be a decent source of saves for his fantasy owners.

Ryan Madson to remain A's closer

Ryan Madson received a vote of confidence from his manager following another tough outing and loss on Tuesday. The team will continue to use him as their closer for the time being.

Fantasy Impact

Madson's struggles continued Tuesday, as he allowed two earned runs in 2/3 of an inning. He's now allowed seven earned runs in his last seven innings pitched. He may be the team's closer for now, but they may just be keeping him there in hopes that he can regain value prior to the trade deadline.

Ryan Madson earns his second save on Friday

Ryan Madson allowed no runs and no hits in one inning against the Mariners on Friday. He had no walks and two strikeouts in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact

One save was a write-off, but two makes for a trend, as Madson looks to be getting a split of the saves chances for Oakland based on matchups. He's worth a speculative pickup in deeper mixed leagues, as his strikeouts make him valuable regardless of role.

Ryan Madson picks up the first A's save of the season

Ryan Madson allowed no runs on one hit in one inning against the White Sox on Wednesday. He had no walks and one strikeout in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact

While this is nice for the Madson owners in deeper leagues, it is not a cause for worry for Doolittle as he had pitched in the previous two games for Oakland. Keep an eye on the A's closer situation just in case, but this should be a one-off.
