Brewers Release Randy Wolf


Somewhat shocking news coming in this morning from Miller Park — the Brewers have reportedly released left hander Randy Wolf. The news was made public via the Brewers’ team Twitter page this morning.

Wolf, 36, was in the midst of his 14th major league season and third consecutive with Milwaukee. Over 142.1 total innings of work, Wolf held true to a 3-10 record with an unsightly 5.69 ERA, 4.74 FIP and 1.57 WHIP. Opponents batted .308 against him and maintained a BABIP of .340 against the left-hander.

The Brewers had a team option on Wolf worth $10 Million for next season with a buyout of $1.5 Million. However, the release of Wolf means GM Doug Melvin will no longer have to decided whether or not to keep the veteran next season.

Shortstop Jeff Bianchi has been recalled from triple-A Nashville to take Wolf’s roster spot.
