Randy Wolf to undergo Tommy John surgery

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

The veteran left-hander will miss the 2013 season but hopes to return in 2014.

Left-hander Randy Wolf will miss the 2013 season after electing to undergo Tommy John surgery next week on his elbow, reports Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun:

Veteran left-hander Randy Wolf, who appeared in five games with the Orioles at the end of this season, will have Tommy John surgery on his left elbow next week and will miss all of 2013.

The season-ending procedure will be the second for the 36-year-old Wolf, who plans to attempt a return to baseball in 2014. Wolf underwent the same operation in July 2005 as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies, forcing him to miss the first half of the 2006 season.

Wolf began the 2012 season on the final year of a three-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers. After a rough five months with the Brew Crew – a 5.68 ERA and 6.1 K/9 in twenty-four starts – Wolf was released, only to be picked up on a minor-league deal with the Baltimore Orioles a week later. Wolf made just five appearances for Baltimore before he was sidelined with his current elbow injury.
