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.
Major League Baseball just announced the umpires for the World Series.
The crew chief will be Gerry Davis. Davis was worked 136 career Postseason games, which are the most of any umpire in Major League Baseball history. This is his sixth World Series overall and third time as crew chief.
Joining Davis will be Phil Cuzzi, Laz Diaz, Dan Iassogna, Bill Miller, Paul Nauert and Mark Wegner. Wegner will serve as the replay official for Games One and Two, after which he will join the on-field crew as the left field umpire for Game Three. Cuzzi will be the Replay Official from Game Three through the conclusion of the World Series. Cuzzi will not be a field umpire for any of the games.
