According to MLB.com’s Corey Brock, it’s likely that scouts were on hand for Randy Wolf‘s start last night against the Rockies. Granted it was Coors Field, but seven earned runs in four innings did not help his stock. His previous start against the Mariners was also lousy. Wolf has pitched 102 innings over 18 starts. Last year, he was finished at the exact same point.
The Phillies and Cubs still might pursue Wolf, perhaps as a fallback. Steven Goldman recently made a good point in the New York Sun – Wolf and Greg Maddux have drastic home-road splits, and would probably only serve as back-end rotation upgrades for most contenders.
