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.
The Orioles are optimistic that the left-hander will be ready to go on Friday. Wolf has registered a 5.28 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 8/7 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings this season.

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.

According to MLB Network's Peter Gammons, "several teams" have expressed interest in free agent Randy Wolf.
Gammons specifically mentions an AL East contender as having interest. Wolf, who was released by the Brewers earlier this week, holds a 5.69 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 142-plus innings (24 starts) this season. He would count for a prorated share of the veteran minimum if signed to a major league contract.

Brewers released LHP Randy Wolf.
And on his 36th birthday, no less. The Brewers were recently considering removing Wolf from the rotation, as Shaun Marcum (elbow) is expected to be activated from the disabled list soon and Wily Peralta and Tyler Thornburg are expected to get looks in the starting rotation down the stretch, but the veteran southpaw is now free to seek opportunities elsewhere. Wolf, an impending free agent, has an ugly 5.69 ERA and 96/45 K/BB ratio over 142 1/3 innings this season.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Randy Wolf could be removed from the rotation when Shaun Marcum (elbow) returns later this week.
Roenicke said that, "right now," the team plans on keeping Wolf in the rotation, but he added that is "will be something we talk about." The Brewers also have Mike Fiers, Mark Rogers and Marco Estrada nearing their innings limits, so there are a lot of decisions that need to be made. Wolf, who is making $9.5 million this season, holds a 5.69 ERA and 1.57 WHIP on the season.
