NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Philadelphia Phillies lost reliever Ryan Madson to injury but welcomed back closer Brad Lidge from the disabled list, the team said Friday.
Madson, 1-0 with four saves this season, was put on the 15-day disabled list due to a broken right big toe sustained after Wednesday’s game, the National League champions said without providing any other detail.
Helping to ease the loss of Madson was the return of Lidge, who joined the club after off-season elbow and knee surgeries.
Philadelphia recalled reliever Antonio Bastardo from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to replace Madson on the roster.
