Madson to DL; Carpenter Recalled

Ryan Madson was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to June 19 with the hand injury.  He’s eligible to return on July 4.  Andrew Carpenter was recalled.  After being DFA’ed during spring training, Carpenter has been reborn as a middle reliever, pitching to 1.58 ERA in LHV this year, including a 0.00 in eight June appearances.  A 51 K / 9 BB ratio over 45.2 IP is obviously helping.  The way things are going, look for him to settle into the closer’s role shortly.
