Sox May Attend Madson's Workout On Feb. 7

Sox Attending Madson Workout?
Multiple reports indicate that the Red Sox will likely be one of a few teams who'll attend the 'full public workout' of former Phillies hurler Ryan Madson. The 33-year old Madson has not pitched in the majors since 2011 due to a series of injuries—including Tommy John surgery.  He's expected to be back in top form—a form which delivered a 2.45 ERA over 113 2/3 innings during 2010 and 2011.  As the Phillies closer for a while in 2011, Madson had 32 saves and an ERA of 2.37. If truly healthy, he would be a nice "insurance" piece at the back end of the Red Sox bullpen—in case Koji Uehara fails to follow-up on his miraculous 2013 effort.
