Baltimore is expected to add Randy Wolf to the roster tomorrow, which will allow the Orioles to include the 36-year-old left-hander on the playoff roster if they a) make the playoffs, and b) actually want him involved.

As for his role, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that Wolf will be asked to work out of the bullpen for the first time since … well, ever basically. Wolf has just five career relief appearances, compared to 366 career starts, and hasn’t pitched multiple games out of the bullpen since he was a 24-year-old in 2001.

Wolf was released by the Brewers after posting a 5.69 ERA in 142 innings, but his secondary numbers weren’t out of line with the rest of his career–which is to say they were decent–and if spotted mostly versus left-handed batters he could be a useful middle reliever down the stretch.
