    I don't think this was posted anywhere here

    Angels signee Mark Mulder suffered a ruptured left Achillies tendon during agility drills, reports Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times (via Twitter). DiGiovanna adds that the lefty "is not expected to pitch this year."

    The former All-Star signed a minor league deal with the Angels in January that would have allowed him to earn as much as $6MM in incentives. Mulder was a workhorse from 2001 to 2005 for the Athletics and Cardinals, averaging 211 innings per season with a 3.65 ERA. However, shoulder issues limited him to just 106 innings from 2006 to 2008, his last year in the big leagues. He had worked as an analyst with ESPN since 2011.

    DiGiovanna tweets that the Angels were "extremely enthused by his throwing sessions and confident he would pitch this year." Mulder stood to earn $1MM if he made the Opening Day

    The Angels' Cactus League opener has a bit of an opening day feel about it.
    Jered Weaver, the ace, is the starting pitcher. The Angels are fielding their everyday lineup, minus the injured Josh Hamilton.

    The starting rotation appears set, at least for now. After Weaver starts Friday, C.J. Wilson is set to start on Saturday, followed by Hector Santiago on Sunday, Garrett Richards on Monday and Tyler Skaggs on Tuesday.
    Joe Blanton, the sixth starter for now, will probably start on one of the three days the Angels have split-squad games and pitch in the middle innings on other days. If the Angels stick with their projected starting five -- rather than make a change because of injury or ineffectiveness -- Blanton might not make the team.
    Angels closer Ernesto Frieri, who was scheduled to pitch one inning Friday, was excused because his wife is due to give birth to the couple's second child. Frieri tweeted a picture of himself, dressed in scrubs, with this caption: "I'm ready to receive my new baby."

    Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said he hoped to get the starting position players two at-bats each, or four or five innings in the field, on Friday.
    I'm really hoping Skaggs gets the 5th spot

    I'm not watching the game. Is Pujols still fat and slow?

    The Angels have outrighted catcher John Hester and lefty Robert Carson, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times tweets. The moves create two openings on the Angels' 40-man roster, which DiGiovanna points out will likely be needed for non-roster invitees who make the Angels' roster out of camp.

    Hester, 30, has a career .216/.294/.351 line in 232 career big-league plate appearances. He appeared in just one game with the Angels in 2013, spending most of the season at Triple-A Salt Lake. Carson, 25, pitched 19 2/3 innings out of the Mets' bullpen in 2013, posting an 8.24 ERA with 3.7 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9. He fared better in 44 1/3 innings at Triple-A Las Vegas, with a 4.06 ERA there. The Angels claimed him from the Mets in October.
