Just six days after the Milwaukee Brewers released left-handed pitcher Randy Wolf, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reported that the 36-year old hurler signed with the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday.
Wolf is will join the team on Wednesday, and will be added to the roster before Saturday, which will allow him to be eligible to play for the Orioles if they make the postseason.
Wolf went 3-10 with a 5.69 ERA, 1.3 HR/9, 2.8 BB/9 and 6.1 SO/9 in 142.1 innings for the Brewers this season, and was eligible to sign with any team for the prorated major league minimum after becoming a free agent on August 22.
The Orioles obviously like the veteran’s experience, as he is 130-117 with a 4.19 ERA in 371 big league games over a 14-season career.
Wolf is the second veteran left-hander that the Orioles have acquired this week, after they traded reliever Matt Lindstrom and a player to be named to Arizona for Joe Saunders on Sunday.
