Randy Wolf is attempting a comeback at age 37 after missing all of last season and it’ll be with the Mariners, as Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports that he’s agreed to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training.

Wolf hasn’t pitched since September of 2012 because of Tommy John elbow surgery and posted a 5.68 ERA that season before going under the knife, but after a 14-year career spent as a starter he’s apparently willing to shift to the bullpen.

Wolf hasn’t had particularly extreme platoon splits for a left-handed pitcher and struggled to crack 90 miles per hour even before the surgery, but certainly a relief workload would give him a better chance to stick around for another season or two.

    A lefty (especially with a previous track record) always gets another chance.

    “Wolf hasn’t pitched since September of 2012 ”

    My god the league is desperate for left handed pitchers.

      I’m still half-expecting someone to invite Terry Mulholland to spring training.

        What’s Jesse Orosco doing? I’m sure some team has a bright idea to invite him, too!
