The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo reports that former-All Star lefthander Mark Mulder, who is attempting a comeback after a five-year hiatus from professional baseball, worked out for the Phillies, along with the Angels, Diamondbacks, Giants and Padres.
The 36-year-old last appeared in the majors in 2008 with the Cardinals where he started just one games going 1.2 innings allowing two runs on four hits. He hasn't pitched a full season since 2005 when he went 16-8 with a 3.64 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. He was an All Star in 2003 and 2004 while finishing second in the Cy Young voting to Roger Clemens in 2001 when he went 21-8 with a 3.45 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.
I guess a flier on a spring training invite couldn't hurt.
