Mulder decided he would try to come back after a seven-year layoff. He worked out over the winter, tried out for a few clubs, and got a minor-league contract from the Angels.
“My buddies texted me about it, then I saw the article,” he said. “It would’ve been a great story if he was able to come back. I helped create it, I guess. It would have been a great story.”
The story took a grisly turn when Mulder ruptured his left Achilles’ tendon on the first day of camp last week, effectively ending his season.
Is Mulder’s career over — again? Rodriguez hopes not.
