The Milwaukee Brewers have released veteran left-hander Randy Wolf, the team has announced:

In a corresponding roster move, the Brewers have recalled infielder Jeff Bianchi from Triple-A.

Wolf appeared in twenty-five games, including twenty-four starts, for Milwaukee this season. Over 142 and one-third innings pitched, the 36-year-old maintained an ERA of 5.69 with 6.1 SO/9 and 2.8 BB/9.

Wolf was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the second round of the 1997 MLB Draft. Making his debut for the club in 1999, he maintained an ERA of 4.21 over eight seasons in Philadelphia. He’s since pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres, Houston Astros and Brewers.

As if being released by your employer isn't bad enough, Wolf was handed his walking papers on his birthday.

The Brewers optioned Bianchi to Triple-A last week to make room on their roster for right-hander Mark Rogers. Bianchi, 25, has yet to collect his first hit at the major league level through thirteen at-bats.
