Blue Jays to sign Randy Wolf

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

MLB Trade Rumors had this little bit, pointing to this tweet from Jeff Fletcher:

Wolf is 38, a left-handed pitcher, who has had a 15 year career in the MLB, playing for the Phillies, Dodgers, Padres, Astros, Dodgers again, Brewers, Orioles and Marlins.

He has a 133-120 record in 382 games, 372 starts. He has a 4.21 career ERA, in 2293.2 innings, he's allowed 2264 hits, 816 walks and 1786 strikeouts.

He pitched in 6 games, 4 starts for the Marlins last year, going 1-3 with a 5.26 ERA. In 25.2 innings, he allowed 33 hits, 6 walks with 19 strikeouts.

He's another depth piece, I really don't understand why they are interested but he could be a player/coach type in the minors.

UPDATE (Minor Leaguer)

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman gives us the details of Wolf's two-way contract: he will make $800,000 if he ever cracks the 25-man roster, and will get to opt out and become a free agent on June 1 if he doesn't.

Also, good job to Gideon Turk of Blue Jays Plus for spotting Wolf working out with the Blue Jays. He deserves your Twitter praise.
