To replace Wolf on their roster, the Orioles have recalled utility player Bill Hall.
Wolf started the season with the Milwaukee Brewers, but was released by the club toward the end of August after posting an ERA of 5.69 over 25 appearances, including 24 starts. The 36-year-old signed with the Orioles a week later and made five appearances, including two starts, for the club before sustaining his injury.
The tear will likely require Tommy John surgery, though nothing has been announced at this time. It would Wolf’s second such procedure, as he underwent the surgery back in 2005.
After signing with the New York Yankees this winter, Hall was released by the club in early April. The 32-year-old reached a contract agreement with the Orioles later that month and has played seven games with the team, collecting two hits, including a home run, over nine at-bats.
Hall spent much of the season with the club’s Triple-A affiliate, hitting .246/.300/430 with 18 doubles and 15 home runs over 342 at-bats.
