Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are close to signing Randy Wolf to a minor league contract.

The Diamondbacks' starters have really struggled so far this season, so they were looking to add some depth in the minors. Wolf actually earned an Opening Day roster spot with the Mariners but requested his release after refusing to sign a 45-day release waiver. While the lefty is some solid depth to have, it's hard to imagine him having a major impact with the big club this year.
Apr 11 - 11:40 AM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that 3-5 teams have reported varying degrees of interest in free agent Randy Wolf.

The veteran southpaw is expected to decide soon where he will sign. He posted a 4.26 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 9/7 K/BB ratio over 19 innings with the Mariners in spring training.
Apr 6 - 8:22 PM

Mariners released LHP Randy Wolf.

Wolf was informed that he had made the team, but Seattle wanted him to sign a 45-day release waiver, which he declined to do. The veteran left-hander held a 4.26 ERA over five starts this spring for the M's. He's trying to make a comeback after missing all of 2013 while recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Mar 25 - 6:23 PM

Randy Wolf continued to state his case for a spot in the Mariners rotation, allowing three runs on six hits over six frames against the Athletics on Sunday.

Wolf walked a pair and struck out one in the ballgame. Most of the damage against him came on a pair of homers off the bats of Josh Donaldson and Derek Norris. The veteran southpaw owns a 4.26 ERA and 9/7 K/BB ratio through 19 innings this spring, and is still in the running for one of the final spots in the M's Opening Day rotation.
Mar 23 - 9:08 PM

Randy Wolf spun four shutout innings on two hits and three walks against the Padres Tuesday.

The veteran left-hander recorded three strikeouts. Wolf is probably a long shot to crack the Mariners' rotation but certainly helped himself in this one, lowering his spring ERA to 4.15. He missed all of 2013 while recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Mar 18 - 11:52 PM

Randy Wolf struggled in his second start of the Cactus League season, surrendering four runs on three hits in over three innings against the Reds.

Wolf also issued a pair of walks while striking out one. The veteran left-hander is in the running for a spot in the Mariners rotation to begin the season, but has to do a better job at keeping the ball in the yard, as Chris Heisey and Brandon Phillips each took one over the boards on Friday.
Mar 7 - 9:14 PM

Randy Wolf pitched well in his Cactus League debut with the Mariners on Sunday, tossing a pair of scoreless innings.

Wolf allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one. The 37-year-old southpaw is in camp as a non-roster invitee, but with the recent injuries to the M's rotation could find his way onto the Opening Day roster with a solid performance this spring.
Mar 2 - 9:43 PM

Mariners signed LHP Randy Wolf to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman confirms news of the signing and adds that he's being looked at as a possible bullpen option. Wolf missed all of 2013 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he's now back to full health. The 37-year-old had a 5.65 ERA over 157 2/3 innings between the Brewers and Orioles in 2012.
Feb 11 - 11:51 AM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Randy Wolf has "multiple offers" from clubs but "is looking for a guaranteed roster spot."

Crasnick was told by a scout who attended a recent workout of Wolf's that the left-hander looked good. The veteran southpaw missed all of 2013 while recovering from Tommy John surgery but should enter spring training with no limitations. Now 37, Wolf last pitched for the Brewers and Orioles in 2012, posting a 5.65 ERA over 157 2/3 innings.

Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN reports that the Twins were one of the teams on hand in Los Angeles to watch Randy Wolf throw earlier in the week.

Wolf has been auditioning for major league teams in recent weeks, attempting to prove his health after missing the entire 2013 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The 37-year-old southpaw may be forced to settle for a minor league contract, but the spacious confines of Target Field wouldn't be a bad place to land.

Randy Wolf auditioned for eight teams last week.

Wolf sat out the 2013 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says the veteran left-hander threw just 87-89 mph with his fastball in last week's workout but showed a good curve. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league deal.

Randy Wolf (elbow) plans to throw for interested teams later this month near his home in Los Angeles.

Wolf missed the entire 2013 season after undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery the winter before. The veteran lefty posted an ugly 5.65 ERA and 1.57 WHIP across 157 2/3 innings in 2012 and will likely have to settle for a minor league contract this offseason.

Randy Wolf is scheduled to undergo Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery next Tuesday.

Wolf can be ruled out for the entire 2013 season, but the 36-year-old lefty told reporters that he wants to return in 2014. He had a 5.65 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 157 2/3 innings this season between the Brewers and Orioles.

Randy Wolf (elbow) will meet with Dr. Lewis Yocum next week in Los Angeles to discuss surgical options.

Whether or not he needs a second Tommy John surgery remains to be seen, but Wolf has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. The veteran left-hander posted a 5.65 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 157 2/3 innings between the Brewers and Orioles this season. He is not considering retirement.
