Surgery on deck for Phillies' Madson
Philadelphia trainer Scott Sheridan said before Monday night's game against St. Louis that there will be a better timetable for Madson's return following the surgery.
Madson had a CT scan Monday and it revealed further damage to his foot. The right-hander filled in as the team's closer in Brad Lidge's absence early this season.
Madson blew his second save of the year in Philadelphia's 7-6, 11-inning win over San Francisco last week and kicked a chair. He went on the disabled list Friday.
