Halo Headlines: Madson has scar tissue removed, the Angel bullpen is a disaster

The May 2nd, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Madson has scar tissue removed, the Angel bullpen is a disaster and much more…

The Story: Ryan Madson had scar tissue removed from his elbow.

The Monkey Says: He played catch yesterday for the first time in over two weeks, so this obviously wasn't a major procedure, but it sure as hell isn't one that fills me with optimism that he would be back before the end of the month.

The Story: The Angel bullpen is a disaster.

The Monkey Says: Just in case you somehow weren't aware.

The Story: Kevin Jepsen played catch yesterday for the first time since he went on the DL.

The Monkey Says: That is good news as there had been nothing resembling a timetable for Jepsen's return. This at least suggests that he won't be out for months.

The Story: The Angels are searching for answers for their poor start.

The Monkey Says: Come for the same rehashed narrative, stay for the vaguely depressing quotes from Scioscia and the Angel players.

The Story: The Angels signed Josh Judy to a minor league contract.

The Monkey Says: He had a 6.99 ERA at Triple-A last season which means he might actually have to wait a week or two before he gets drafted into the Angel bullpen.

The Story: Ten things to know about Howie Kendrick.

The Monkey Says: Let it henceforth be known as a Sloppy GIDP.
