Randy Wolf howled for mercy in Wednesday's loss to the Royals, surrendering eight runs over 3 2/3 innings.
The Royals scored a run in each of the four innings in which the lefty appeared, including five in the fourth. Wolf served up two solo home runs, two of the eight hits he gave up along with three walks and two strikeouts. The veteran had pitched reasonably will in his first two starts back in the majors, but Wednesday's outing balloons his ERA to 6.11 in 17 2/3 innings. Wolf takes on the Rays in a home outing next week. Sep 2 - 11:09 PM

Randy Wolf pitched well in Thursday's loss to the Angels, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings.

Wolf's second start with the Tigers was a throwback effort to the days of his youth. The 39-year-old southpaw struck out five, walked two and surrendered his lone run on a shallow RBI single by Albert Pujols in the sixth. Alas, this singular run would be enough to saddle him with the loss, as the Tigers fell by a score of 2-0. Through two starts, Wolf has allowed five runs in 14 innings. It's somewhat difficult to believe that he'll continue to pitch to a sub-3.00 ERA, but he'll try to continue this late resurgence when he hits the dusty trail to face the Royals in his next start.

Randy Wolf took the loss in Saturday's contest with the Rangers, surrendering four runs (three earned) on nine hits over seven innings.

Wolf turned 39 on Saturday, but pitched like a younger man in a (mostly) effective start in which he struck out five without walking a batter. The Rangers put up a four-spot against him in the third inning, but that was the only frame in which they scored. The veteran right-hander held a 2.53 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 106/40 K/BB ratio across 139 2/3 innings for the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo prior to being shipped over to the Tigers. We wouldn't recommend him for fantasy purposes except in select match-ups, as his last standout season came in 2011. He'll look to continue his run against Father Time when he faces the Angels at home in his next start.

Tigers purchased the contract of LHP Randy Wolf from Triple-A Toledo.

Wolf was acquired from the Blue Jays on Thursday to provide depth to an injury-ravaged rotation. He'll be making his first start with the Tigers on Saturday as he celebrates his 39th birthday. The southpaw compiled a 2.53 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 106/40 K/BB ratio over 139 2/3 innings at Triple-A Buffalo.

Tigers acquired LHP Randy Wolf from the Blue Jays for cash considerations.

The Tigers were in need of a starter with Anibal Sanchez and Daniel Norris both sidelined, so Wolf is back in the majors and will pitch Saturday against the Rangers. The veteran southpaw has compiles a 2.53 ERA and 106/40 K/BB ratio in 139 2/3 innings over 23 starts this season at the Triple-A level. He turns 39 on Saturday.
Aug 20 - 5:35 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Randy Wolf recently requested his release from the Blue Jays.

However, Heyman says the club is considering promoting him in September, so they may hang on to him. A decision is coming in the next couple days. Wolf, who will turn 39 later this week, boasts a 2.58 ERA at Triple-A Buffalo this season.
Aug 18 - 10:05 PM

Making his spring debut, Randy Wolf gave up four runs in 2 2/3 innings versus the Pirates on Saturday.

Wolf just signed with the Blue Jays 12 days ago, so he wasn't any sort of candidate to make the team out of spring training. He'll open the season in Triple-A and try to work his way back to the majors.

Blue Jays signed LHP Randy Wolf to a minor league contract.

The news was passed along by Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register via Randy's brother, Jim, who is a major league umpire. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the deal is worth $800,000 if Wolf makes the majors and contains a June 1 opt-out clause. Wolf, 38, will give the Jays some starter depth following the injury to Marcus Stroman (knee). The veteran left-hander missed 2013 while recovering from Tommy John surgery before holding a 5.26 ERA over 25 2/3 innings with the Marlins last season. Wolf seems likely to begin the year in extended spring training given his late start.
Mar 16 - 8:28 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Randy Wolf wants to continue playing in 2015.

Wolf, 38, returned from Tommy John surgery to post a 5.26 ERA over 25 2/3 innings with the Marlins last season. The veteran left-hander will have to settle for a minor league contract.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register speculates that Randy Wolf or Michael Roth are likely to be called up to start on Saturday against the Athletics.

That's assuming they don't find someone from outside the organization, which is something they seem likely to pursue. It's worth noting that Bartolo Colon would be on regular rest Saturday. Wade LeBlanc started for the Halos on Monday but was designated for assignment after being hammered for six runs over 3 1/3 innings. Wolf holds a 4.99 ERA over six starts at Triple-A Salt Lake, while Roth has posted a 2.62 mark over 22 Double-A outings.

Randy Wolf opted out of his contract with the Orioles.

The veteran southpaw has been toiling at Triple-A Norfolk where he registered a 4.20 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 12/5 K/BB ratio over 15 innings. He should be able to latch on elsewhere if he so chooses.
