The Arizona Diamondbacks have given pitcher Randy Wolf his release.
Wolf exercised his opt-out clause in his contract. He had been playing at Triple-A Reno making six starts with a 4.50 ERA. Wolf must have felt he had no chance of earning a call up soon from the Diamondbacks and instead simply will try to latch on elsewhere.
Upon getting his release Wolf signed on with the Miami Marlins who recently lost pitcher Jose Fernandez to Tommy John surgery.
#Marlins lose Jose Fernandez and add Randy Wolf. Now that's a sad fish story.
