Former Oakland Athletics pitcher Mark Mulder shocked the baseball community when he retired in 2008 at only 30 years of age.

Sure, it was likely the smart decision as Mulder was dealing with a handful of injuries but most know that once you call it quits due to injury, you never get another chance.

Mulder, a former 20-game winner may have known that too, but he’s attempting to defy logic five years later in a comeback bid – a bid that has a handful of teams interested.

A nine-year veteran, Mulder amassed a 103-60 career record – though his final three seasons were all but wastes as he only pitched about 100 innings in those three years combined.

Now healthy, Mulder has worked out for a handful of teams in an attempt go get back on the field:

Mulder has worked out for the Giants, Padres, Diamondbacks, Angels, and Phillies over two sessions. In the second session, Mulder, who hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2008, improved his velocity from 88 to 92 miles per hour.

We don’t know what his command looked like or how healthy he’d be pitching for a full season, but things look somewhat promising right now.
