Mark Mulder has narrowed his list down to three: Texas, Cleveland and St. Louis are now the front-runners to add Mulder. The Diamondbacks were in the running but were informed they are no longer being considered. The Diamondbacks made a 1 year, 1 million dollar offer with incentives that would reach 2.5 million dollars. They were also four options in the deal. Both Texas and Cleveland offered Mulder two years, but amounts are unknown. Mulder's agent, Greg Clifton expects Mulder to make 20 to 25 starts next season.

According to the Fort Worth Star Telegram, Mulder has narrowed his choices to the Cardinals or Rangers.
