07:31 AM ET 02.12 | Though it's unclear when free agent reliever Ryan Madson might be available to pitch in the majors, teams are watching. A Nationals scout attended the public workout of [Madson's] in Phoenix on Friday and, according to a person familiar with the situation, were impressed by the right-hander. ... [Madson] is believed to finally be fully healthy after 2012 Tommy John surgery. Madson tore a ligament in his right elbow in spring training with the Cincinnati Reds in 2012 and didn't throw a pitch for them all season. He signed an incentive-laden, one-year, $3.5-million deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim last offseason, hoping to serve as their closer, but had several setbacks in his return and didn't throw a pitch for them in majors either. He was released in August.

Lefthanded relief is still a trouble spot for the Nats. Blevins, the LHP, they picked up for the A's, is actually more effective against right handed hitters.

The Reds and Halos have come forward and help Madson with his retirement so why not the Nats jump in and help also on a worn down reliever.
