Randy Wolf signs with fifth team
Meet the poor man’s Jamie Moyer. The Los Angeles Angels have signed Randy Wolf to a minor league contract and he will pitch for Triple-A Salt Lake.
Granted Wolf is only 37 years old and Moyer pitched till he was 49, but it feels like Wolf has been around just as long. Wolf is left-handed like Moyer, and the way Wolf’s career is going now, he could be heading in the same direction as Moyer.
The Angels are the fifth organization Wolf will pitch for this season.
Wolf pitched in major league action for the Miami Marlins and was 1-3 with a 5.26 ERA. Wolf has also pitched for the Seattle Mariners, the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Baltimore Orioles.
Wolf missed 2013 with Tommy John surgery. Wolf has pitched for 15 seasons and has spent time with the Orioles, the Milwaukee Brewers, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Houston Astros, the San Diego Padres and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Wolf made his debut with the Phillies in 1999 and spent eight seasons in Philadelphia. Wolf made the National League All-Star team in 2003 with a 16-10 record and a 4.23 ERA. Wolf is 133-120 and with a 4.21 ERA in his career.
