No real injury or catastrophic event. He's just walking too many batters and his declining strikeout rate is unable to offset the walks. Combine that with an increased HR rate and you've got a recipe for disaster.
Who knows? He could be hiding an injury, but for whatever reason, Mulder isn't the same, and I don't think he ever will be.
I don't understand how it "just happened" either, but it did, and it's looking more and more like this is a permanent situation. It's really a sad situation.
