Description: The Angels parted ways with lefthander Mark Mulder on Tuesday.
Insight: Mulder (103-60, 4.18 ERA in nine seasons) was likely to miss the whole season anyway after rupturing his Achilles in spring training. The 36-year-old will have to put his comeback on hold for now.

Description: Angels lefty Mark Mulder's comeback appears to be over before it began. He suffered a ruptured left Achilles during agility drills, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Mulder's surgery has a 5-8 month recovery time. The left-hander was attempting to pitch in the big leagues for the first time since 2008. He initially retired due to mechanical issues related to multiple shoulder injuries but made a major adjustment to his motion during the winter and was expected to compete for a rotation spot with the Angels.

Description: According to Jerry Crasnick of, the Angels have signed Mark Mulder to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. The 36-year-old retired in 2009 due to mechanical issues caused by two shoulder surgeries, but he decided to make a comeback after tweaking his delivery to emulate Dodgers reliever Paco Rodriguez.
Insight: Mulder's fastball was clocked at 89-90 mph during a mound session for three teams last month, and the Angels were considered the frontrunner to sign him. It's unclear if Mulder will attempt to come back as a starter or reliever. The lefty is 103-60 with a 4.18 ERA in his career, but he was 97-50 with a 3.87 ERA in his first six seasons and finished second in AL Cy Young voting in 2001.
