Angels sign P Madson

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim signed pitcher Ryan Madson to a one-year contract Wednesday.

The deal is worth $3.5 million in base salary with a $2.5 million roster bonus and $1 million in incentives.

Madson signed with the Cincinnati Reds last offseason, but did not appear in a game as he needed Tommy John surgery before the start of the season.

He pitched to a 4-2 record with a 2.37 ERA and 32 saves in 62 relief appearances for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2011.

The 32-year-old righty has a 47-30 record with 52 saves and a 3.59 earned run average in 491 career appearances (18 starts) over nine seasons with the Phillies.
