ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Mark Mulder has been invited to spring training with the Los Angeles Angels, nearly six years after he last pitched in the major leagues.

The Angels announced a deal Tuesday with the 36-year-old Mulder and 18 additional non-roster invitees.

Mulder won 103 games over nine major league seasons with Oakland and St. Louis, including a 21-win season in 2001. The left-hander struggled with arm injuries and surgery over his final two campaigns with the Cardinals, throwing his most recent major league pitch on July 9, 2008.

Mulder worked as a television analyst before retooling his delivery and beginning a comeback attempt late last year.

He agreed to a deal two weeks ago with the Angels, hoping for a shot to earn a spot on their pitching staff in spring training.
