Diamondbacks closing in on deal with Randy Wolf


In accordance with several reports by several beat writers Friday morning, the Arizona Diamondbacks are looking around at free agent starting pitching to increase their Triple-A depth.

Now, Nick Piecoro of Arizona Central Sports reports that the pitcher in question is veteran Randy Wolf. The news comes off of the heels of a less-than-stellar 3.1 inning performance against the Giants on Thursday night by Randall Delgado. Delgado gave up three runs in the outing and walked three.

While a deal with Wolf would be to start him in Triple-A, there will undoubtedly be some sort of language including an incentive if the 37-year old were to make the Major League roster. Wolf has not pitched in the majors since 2012, when he split the season between Milwaukee and Baltimore. He has mostly been a National League pitcher and the move to shore up depth makes sense for the Diamondbacks.

In five games with the Mariners during Spring Training, Wolf pitched in 19 innings with a 4.26 ERA. He was released by the club on March 25th.
