Randy Wolf’s status uncertain due to elbow injury

Baltimore signed Randy Wolf four weeks ago to provide some veteran pitching depth down the stretch, but after just two starts and three relief appearances the 35-year-old left-hander may be finished because of an elbow injury.

Wolf underwent an MRI exam Tuesday and will meet with Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed Tommy John surgery on Wolf back in 2005.

“There are two or three options,” manager Buck Showalter said, via Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun. “Randy’s still got some questions he wants to ask Dr. Wilckens and Dr. Yocum before he and we make a definite decision about his availability for the rest of the year.”

Wolf was released by the Brewers after going 3-10 with a 5.69 ERA in 24 starts and agreed to pitch out of the bullpen for the Orioles, but quickly moved into the rotation. And his elbow started hurting during the fifth inning of his Saturday start versus Boston.

    Jimbar–In regard to Randy Wolf Hevhas always been a journey pitcher .He didn’t have a good. season with Milwaukee .Given the state of Baltimore Pitching Staff losing Randy for the rest of the season will certainly hurt them as he gave Vetearn Presence to the Baltimore Team .In my view Baltimore pitching staff is where they fail to measurebup to the other contenders .I believe it’s Ben a great run and story but Ito think they would make the playoffs is like dreaming of a warm summer day in January.
