MLB rumors: Mark Mulder's deal with Angels could be worth $6 million dollars

Starting pitcher Mark Mulder has been out of Major League Baseball since the 2008 season, but that changed Wednesday night when the Anaheim Angels signed the veteran arm to a one-year deal.

Mulder had worked out for multiple teams and reportedly looked very good – though his inability to stay healthy likely forced many teams to shy away.

Not the Angels though, who offered up a deal worth $6 million dollars – assuming incentives are met:

Mulder agreed to minor league deal with angels. Can make 1 mill guarantee on Ml deal and up to 6 mill in incentives

Of course, the likelihood of Mulder reaching such incentives are unlikely, despite the numbers not being released. It’s likely the deal includes multiple caveats, something like 200+ innings, 15 wins, etc. Obtainable statistics in theory but extremely unlikely in reality.

The base deal, which will pay Mulder one million dollars in guaranteed money is a drop in the bucket to the Angels, who will most certainly get their money out of the veteran starter. He is expected to slide into their starting rotation.
