This just in... Ryan Madson injured.
Ryan Madson has torn a ligament in his throwing elbow and will miss the entire season. He no longer will have the best season for the Cincinnati Reds bullpen because of this. As tempting as it will be for the Reds to put Aroldis Chapman in the closer role he is not ready. Sean Marshall will take over for the injured Madson and in turn will have the best season out of the bullpen for the Reds. It is a step down, but not a major one and I think the Reds will still be in contention. Marshall has good stuff against both lefties and righties so he will be ok.
