Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Baltimore Orioles pitcher Randy Wolf has been
diagnosed with a ligament tear in his left elbow and will miss the remainder
of the season, the team announced on Wednesday.
Wolf did pitch five innings in Saturday's 9-6 Baltimore victory over Boston,
but acknowledged discomfort in his elbow shortly afterward, and an MRI taken
earlier this week revealed a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament.
The 36-year-old made two starts and five overall appearances for the Orioles
after being signed by the club in late August, shortly following his release
by the Milwaukee Brewers. In 30 games -- 26 starts -- between the two teams
this season, Wolf compiled a 5-10 record with a 5.65 ERA.
Wolf received a no-decision in Saturday's outing and allowed three runs on
seven hits over his five-inning stint.
To fill his place on the 40-man roster, the Orioles selected the contract of
journeyman utility player Bill Hall from Triple-A Norfolk. The 32-year-old
appeared in seven games with Baltimore earlier in the season before being
outrighted to the minors in June.
