TMJ4 in Milwaukee is reporting left-hander Mark Mulder has decided to retire. The nine-year veteran hasn't pitched a full season since 2005 after having rotator cuff surgery.
If the report is true, the two-time All Star will finish his career 103-60 with a 4.18 ERA. He led the AL with 21 victories in 2001, finishing second to Roger Clemens in the Cy Young race.
The Michigan State product started his major league career in 2000 with Oakland, where he was 81-42 with a 3.92 ERA over five seasons. He signed as a free agent with St. Louis, where he was only able to pitch one full season, going 16-8 with a 3.64 ERA in 2005. Because of the shoulder injury, he managed just 23 starts from 2006 on, struggling to a 6-10 mark and failing to record a victory in his final two seasons.
Pitching in seven postseason games -- four with the A's and three with the Cardinals -- Mulder was 3-4 with 2.34 ERA. He never pitched in the World Series, though he won a ring with the Cardinals in 2006 despite not being on the postseson roster.
