Randy Wolf is making a comeback

5 Comments

Randy Wolf hasn’t pitched since September of 2012, sitting out all this year following Tommy John elbow surgery, but the 36-year-old left-hander is making a comeback.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that Wolf is scheduled to throw for interested teams later this month in Los Angeles and is looking to sign somewhere willing to give him a shot at winning a rotation spot.

Even setting aside the injury Wolf had an ugly 5.68 ERA in 158 innings for the Brewers and Orioles in 2012, although he was a solid mid-rotation starter for the previous decade.

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
