Madson on paternity leave; Mathieson recalled
SAN FRANCISCO -- Phillies closer Ryan Madson's wife had a son Thursday. Madson is expected to rejoin the team Saturday.

Madson has been placed on paternity leave, which allows him to be away for 72 hours.

The Phillies recalled right-hander Scott Mathieson from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take his place on the 25-man roster.
