Re: per mlbtraderumors.com...Randy Wolf will not have his option picked up
Wait a minute... how is Randy Wolf like Pete Schourek or Jimmy Haynes? I seem to recall Wolf having much more of a track record for success, but maybe I'm missing something there.
We have two solid RHP at the top of our rotation for the next several years. We need a third pitcher, ideally a LHP, to slot in there regardless of whether Bailey and Cueto (both RHP as well) develop to expectations. I don't see any LHP in the pipeline who look like they could slot in at that #3 level that we need.
Last I checked, Randy Wolf was a guy who put up a consistent 4 to 4.5 ERA, missed a fair amount of bats, and threw with his left hand. He may not be healthy right now, but if he checks out with doctors and we can get him for a fair contract, what's not to like?
