Mark Mulder suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon Saturday during agility drills, the  Los Angeles Angels have confirmed.

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 took to Twitter after being injured:

Mulder, in a text message to ESPN.com, said he doesn't know what his future holds right now.

"I really have no idea," he said.

Mulder said he hopes to meet with a surgeon on Monday or Tuesday.

"Once I do that, I'll maybe have a better idea of what's next besides rehab," he said in the text message.

Mulder is 103-60 with a 4.18 ERA in nine seasons with the Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals . He hasn't pitched since 2008 because of shoulder issues, and had been working as an analyst with ESPN since 2011.

Mulder began his comeback in Arizona in November and auditioned for the San Francisco Giants, Arizona Diamondbacks and numerous other clubs before reaching an agreement with the Angels.

Information from ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick was used in this report.
