Veteran pitcher Randy Wolf will undergo Tommy John surgery for the second time and miss the 2013 season.
The left-hander appeared in five games and made two starts for the Orioles after being signed on Aug. 31, going 2-0 with a 5.28 ERA. Wolf, 36, plans to pitch in the 2014 season, but it’s unlikely to come in Baltimore as he was set to become a free agent this offseason.
The 14-year-veteran was released by the Milwaukee Brewers on Aug. 22 and was eligible for the Orioles’ postseason roster before tearing a ligament in his left elbow. His final appearance was a start in Boston on Sept. 22 before the injury was diagnosed a few days later.
Wolf is 132-117 with a 4.20 ERA in 376 career appearances in the big leagues.
