Randy Wolf (elbow) will meet with Dr. Lewis Yocum next week in Los Angeles to discuss surgical options.
Whether or not he needs a second Tommy John surgery remains to be seen, but Wolf has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. The veteran left-hander posted a 5.65 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 157 2/3 innings between the Brewers and Orioles this season. He is not considering retirement.

Randy Wolf has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow.
Wolf is obviously done for the season and could require a second Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The veteran left-hander posted a 5.28 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 8/7 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings this season for the Orioles. He will be a free agent this winter.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Randy Wolf has "two or three options" in regards to how he wants to handle his left elbow injury.
Wolf underwent an MRI, but the O's haven't released the results yet. Though the team hasn't confirmed it, surgery certainly seems to be one of the options. "There are two or three options," Showalter said. "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."

Randy Wolf is scheduled to visit Dr. Lewis Yocum later this week about his injured left elbow.
Wolf felt elbow discomfort in the final inning of his start Saturday against the Red Sox and the O's are obviously worried that he has some level of strucutural damage. The veteran starter is likely done for the season, and he could miss part of 2013 if he needs surgery.

Randy Wolf felt elbow pain during his start Saturday against the Red Sox and has been given a cortisone shot.

Randy Wolf pitched decently in his second start as a member of the Orioles, allowing three runs on seven hits over five innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Saturday.
Wolf also walked two and struck out two in the game. The Orioles literally pulled Wolf from the scrap heap last month, and he's come in to go 2-0 despite a 5.28 ERA in his five appearances (two starts). It's unlikely that he'll draw another start in the Orioles rotation the remainder of the season.

Randy Wolf has been named the Orioles' starter for Sunday's game against the Athletics in Oakland.
It will be his first start with his new club, and first overall since August 19 with the Brewers. He owns an underwhelming 5-10 record, 5.69 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 148 2/3 innings on the season.

Orioles signed LHP Randy Wolf to a one-year contract.
Wolf will make the veteran minimum while pitching in a bullpen role for the Orioles, though it's possible he could get a chance to start down the line. The veteran left-hander was released by the Brewers after posting a 5.69 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 96/45 K/BB ratio across 142 1/3 innings.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Randy Wolf could be used as a starter or reliever.
Brian Matusz is the lone southpaw in the Orioles' bullpen right now and he's hardly established as a lefty specialist, so relief might be the logical spot for Wolf. The 37-year-old has really struggled this season in general, but he has held left-handed batters to a .235/.306/.402 batting line for his career. The Orioles are expected to officially sign him within the next 24 hours.
