Randy Wolf won a spot in the Mariners’ starting rotation coming out of spring training, but then the team asked him to sign an advanced consent form that more or less reworked his contract terms and the 37-year-old left-hander requested his release.
Two weeks later Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Wolf is close to signing a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks, who lost starter Patrick Corbin and reliever David Hernandez to Tommy John elbow surgery recently.
Wolf is himself coming back from Tommy John surgery, which knocked him out for all of last season. He wasn’t particularly effective this spring in Mariners camp and had a 5.65 ERA for the Orioles and Brewers in 2012, so it’s tough to expect much from Wolf at this point.
