MRI reveals Mulder has rotator cuff problem

Monday, June 26, 2006

DETROIT -- St. Louis Cardinals left-hander Mark Mulder has rotator cuff inflammation and irritation in his left shoulder, an MRI revealed.

The Cardinals plan to re-examine Mulder's shoulder in about a week, and haven't set a timetable on his return. Mulder was supposed to start Sunday, but Sidney Ponson filled in.

Mulder (6-5), who has a 6.09 ERA, was put on the 15-day disabled list Thursday because of a shoulder strain.
