2010 Chachi #25 Ryan Madson

Reliever Ryan Madson was activated from the disabled list yesterday, after missing the last few months with a broken toe. (The toe was broken in a post-game tirade involving a folding chair.) He had started the year as the team's closer while Brad Lidge recovered from elbow woes. Madson will slide back into his familiar 8th inning role, and he's #25 in this year's Chachi set.

Phillies debut: September 27, 2003
How acquired: Selected by Phillies in the 9th round of June 1998 draft
Others wearing #46 in the 2000s: Trever Miller 2000, Mark Holzemer 2000, Vern Ruhle 2001-2002 (coach), Elizardo Ramirez 2004, Aaron Fultz 2005-2006, Joe Bisenius 2007, John Ennis 2007, Drew Carpenter 2008, Ryan Madson 2009
2009 Postseason: The Phillies played 15 Postseason games, and Madson pitched in all but 3 of those games. In 10.1 innings, he compiled a 3.48 ERA, striking out 14 while winning a game and saving a game.
