A potentially inspiring story has come to a somewhat cruel end.

According to ESPN, Los Angeles Angels pitcher Mark Mulder has ruptured his Achilles tendon while doing agility drills and therefore will miss the upcoming MLB season.

Mulder, 36, was attempting a comeback after a six-year absence. He signed a minor league contract with the Angels¬†in January that included an invitation to the team’s big league spring training camp.

Mulder, spoke of the hurt he felt when he had to break the news to his family via  Twitter.

Mulder has a 103-60 record with a 4.18 ERA in nine seasons with the Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals.
