BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 While Wolf posted an awful ERA last season—the worst of his 14-year major league career—rest assured Team Wolf, he's not an awful pitcher; he’s still the merely bad pitcher he has been for the past few years. Some bad luck combined with an influx of capable youngsters in Milwaukee got him shipped to the AL for the first time in his career last September, but some team desperate for veteran leadership figures to give him a shot . . . next offseason. Tommy John surgery has already ended his 2013 before it began.
2012 Wolf is fifth on the lists of most games started over both the past three seasons and past four seasons. That he's turned into one of the most dependable—if average—starters in the game flies in the face of his past reputation as being injury-prone. He also has an FIP about half a run higher than his ERA over those periods, as he's proven to be the consumate crafty lefty, mixing two fastballs and four breaking pitches as needed. While his empirical data has earned him the expectation of outpitching his peripherals, a season where the theoretical model catches up to him wouldn't be a shocker.
2011 Doug Melvin’s most recent expensive rotation patch was disturbingly leaky throughout most of the summer, as Wolf owned a 5.07 ERA at the end of July before a late-season surge got his numbers into more comfortable territory. While Wolf stayed healthy, reached the 200-inning mark, and pitched better than any non-Gallardo Brewers starter has in several years, that’s a lot of mediocrity for the money. His walk and strikeout rates reached their worst levels in years, he struggled against lefties, and his 4.80 SIERA doesn’t bode well for the next three years of his contract. He’s not about to pull a complete Suppan, but there’s trouble ahead.
2010 Despite a strong 2008 stretch run in Houston, Wolf had to settle for a one-year, $5 million deal (before incentives) to return to LA. It was money well spent, as he set personal bests for starts, innings, and ERA+ (122) while compiling his highest back-to-back season innings total since 2002-2003. Thanks in no small part to a league-low .254 BABIP (regression alert!), he finished a strong 11th in SNLVAR and tied for fourth in Quality Starts (24); at one point from late June to late September he delivered at least six innings in 17 straight starts. Having dispelled some qualms about his fragility, Wolf hit the market as the second-best free-agent starter behind John Lackey, but even given the near-certainty of his getting a multi-year deal somewhere, the Dodgers inexplicably didn't offer him arbitration, so they went uncompensated when he signed a three-year, $29.75 million contract with Milwaukee.
2009 Wolf looked like a bad deal for the Astros, who picked him up at the trade deadline for a minor league pitcher, but they went 10-2 in his starts as they made their wild card run. He made 30 starts for the first time in five years. entitling him to be the bearer of the coveted "Temporarily Healthy Free Agent" card.
2008 His decade in the Phillies' organization having come to a close, Wolf spurned multi-year offers to sign a one-year, $8 million deal with his hometown team. The move paid off initially (six quality starts in his first 11 with a 3.41 ERA and 3.6 K/BB ratio), but shoulder inflammation possibly related the mechanical adjustments made upon returning from his 2005 Tommy John surgery soon cost him velocity, and the rest of his season wasn't so pretty (two quality starts out of seven with a 7.12 ERA, 1.2 K/BB ratio, and a second half spent rehabbing). While Wolf's long-term prognosis is still favorable, the fact that he has thrown just 376 big-league innings over the past four years has him back on a one-year deal in San Diego, this time at half the price (though it could grow to $9 million via incentives).
2007 Wolf`s 2005 season ended with Tommy John surgery, and it took him until after the All-Star break last year to get back onto a major league diamond. He demonstrated that he was pretty much the same pitcher he had been the previous three years, absent some control--common enough after TJ and the sort of thing that can be expected to improve as he gets further into his recovery. The downside is that the name Randy Wolf still conjures notions of the pitcher he was from 2000 to 2002, not the average guy he`s been since. The Dodgers shelled out $7.5 million hoping to get the former; the change in parks will work in their favor.
2006 After two stints on the DL in 2004 with elbow tendinitis, Wolf was shelved in June 2005 and underwent Tommy John surgery on July 1. He`s aiming for a mid- to late-season return in 2006, but he will certainly need a fair amount of time after that to regain his command.
2005 The injuries that the Philadelphia pitching staff suffered last season weren't catastrophic events like torn labrums or rotator cuffs. They were closer to the shoulder tendonitis that caused Randy Wolf to miss seven weeks between two DL stints. The Phillies' feeling is that the former kind of injury is more preventable than the latter, but both types have the same underlying cause, which is the accumulated strain from the wholly unnatural act of repeatedly throwing a small spheroid faster than a speeding vehicle. Sometimes the San Andreas Fault will lay dormant for a while then go off for a big one; at other times it will content itself with a series of localized quakes, which are barely noticed by anyone but seismologists. As for Wolf, whose injury measured about 5.2 on the Saunders Scale, his doctors insist that his arm is fine, though it's a troubling sign that his strikeout rate dropped as much as it did.
2003 Just plain fun to watch. Wolf has four different pitches, all with different movements and speeds, and he now has the control to use all of them effectively. The Tanana-esque 68-mph slow curve he throws often makes batters look obscenely foolish. After a case of elbow tendonitis in the spring, Wolf was among the best pitchers in the majors in the second half. If he stays healthy, and with a good chance at a whole lot of runs being scored for him, a Cy Young isn’t out of the question.
2002 As badly as Wolf was abused in 2000 and in the early going of 2001, he seemed to recover his arm strength during his demotion to the bullpen, returning to post a 2.19 ERA and allow just 62 base runners in 70 innings over ten post-break starts. On talent alone, Wolf is among the NL’s best young pitchers; by the end of 2002, he’ll either be a Cy Young contender or he’ll have a torn labrum.
2001 Terry Francona’s legacy may be the destruction of Randy Wolf’s star potential. If he has survived the abuse, Wolf could be a fun pitcher to watch for years to come because he has four good pitches thrown at four different speeds. When he has the control to keep them near the plate, batters tend to look very silly. Unfortunately, Bowa will likely finish the job Francona started.
2000 Here’s the perfect example of how not to handle a young pitcher. Wolf was still working on polishing his curve at Triple-A when injuries forced the Phillies to call him up to the majors. They then rode him hard, frequently letting him throw well over 100 pitches. If he doesn’t burn out and gets enough experience to sharpen his control, he’s going to be an outstanding pitcher. Unless the team changes its approach to handling pitchers, that’s not going to happen.
1999 Uberprospect who faced a dangerously high workload at SWB this year. He reached Triple-A after just 11 pro starts, and should be a very good pitcher if the Phils haven't ruined him; if they have, the entire organization should be canned, because they just wasted their best pitching prospect this decade. Wolf sports a good fastball and great change-up, works quickly, and throws strikes.
1998 The Pepperdine lefty was expected to be a first round pick, but a poor start to the 1997 college season caused him to slip to the second round, where the Phillies were happy to take him. With a 1.89 ERA over his last two seasons combined and strikeout-to-walk rates of better than 4-to-1, its hard to see where his early-season delivery problems (which may have been caused by having his third different collegiate pitching coach, or hitting cleanup) really damaged his ability. New York-Penn hitters didn’t have a chance against him.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I picked up Andrew Heaney when Jose Fernandez went down, but Randy Wolf seems to be holding down that slot for the Marlins. Is Heaney still worth hanging onto?
(Matt from Silver Spring)
Depends on format, but in deep mixers or NL-onlys, I'd hang on for a little longer for sure (Paul Sporer)
2012-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)If you were the Brewers' GM, what would you be looking to do at the deadline?
(adambennett from The Batcave)
The Crew is feeling the hangover from last year’s playoff push, and too many injuries makes it clear they won’t be in the playoff picture. So I’d sell, just like they’re getting ready to do now. Zack Greinke is a great trading chip, and I’d move Aramis Ramirez and maybe Corey Hart if I had to—if anyone wants Randy Wolf or K-Rod, I’d trade them as well. Also not a Carlos Gomez fan; I’ve been hoping they’d dump him for years. They need to restock their farm system with some position prospects to make up for last year’s fire sale and give a look to Logan Schafer and Taylor Green. They can be competitive again once the team’s healthy, so there’s no need to dump everyone, but they need to face reality and get ready for 2013. (Michael Street)
2012-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Randy Wolf finally cooked? He has been an effective innungs-eating SP previously despite declining peripherals, but he has been awful this year.
(DF from NC)
Maybe not cooked -- he's not this bad -- but an innings-eater is about the best you can hope for with him. Mid-4.00s ERA. (Derek Carty)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are the Brewers doing? making one last run with Prince?
(Jack from LA)
They really needed some starters, and while I'm not a big Randy Wolf guy, nine million bucks a year isn't that much money right now. This doesn't close the gap on the Cards; for that, Parra and Bush have to come close to being the guys they're supposed to be. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, I assume the Yankees will start Sabathia twice on short rest in order to get him three starts; would the Yankees be wise to start Pettitte once of short rest (games 3+6) in order to get 5 lefty starts in a seven game series? Or is the platoon advantage vs. the Phillies not THAT important? Or do you think the Yankees will through in Gaudin and go with a 4 man rotation?
(Nick Stone from New York, NY)
Hey, Nick! I spent a good deal of time trying to figure out the two teams' rotation options on a game-by-game basis. Cutting and pasting from the preview, here's what I came up with:

Game 1: Sabathia (7) v. Lee (9)
Game 2: Burnett (6) v. Martinez (12)
Game 3: Pettitte (5) v. Hamels (9)
Game 4: Sabathia (3) or Gaudin (11) vs. Lee (3), Happ (10), or Blanton (12)
Game 5: Burnett (3), Sabathia (4, if Gaudin Game 4), or Gaudin (12) vs. Happ, Blanton or Lee (4)
Game 6: Pettitte (3) or Burnett (5, if Sabathia Game 4 and Gaudin Game 5) vs. Martinez (5), Hamels (3), Happ or Blanton
Game 7: Sabathia (3, if pitched Game 4) or Pettitte (4, if Sabathia Game 4) vs. Lee (3, if pitched Game 4) or Hamels (4)

While the Phillies hit lefties about as well as righties in the regular season, they haven't been all that successful doing so in the postseason, batting at a .194/.322/.444 clip, with a few big hits — Ryan Howard's two-run double off Clayton Kershaw, his homer off Randy Wolf, and Raul Ibanez's homer off George Sherrill - offsetting their woes. My read on Sabathia and Pettitte is that they're better than the Dodger southpaw starters at this point in time, so yes, I do think it makes sense to throw more lefties at them, particularly given that Gaudin doesn't match up well with them at all. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-10-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Colletti's extension?
(David from Sonoma State University, CA)
You know how some players have their best years right as they're about to become free agents? That's what happened with Colletti - he had a fantastic year. No new dumb contracts, great plays towards the end of the winter to get bargains on Randy Wolf, Orlando Hudson and Manny Ramirez (who exercised his player option and will return, according to the tweets I've received today), and smart in-season acquisitions that helped the team reach the NLCS at minimal future cost (though Josh Bell does make me wince a little). Hell, even Juan Pierre made him look good by playing well during Manny's absence.

The Dodgers have now made the postseason in three of Colletti's four years, and while that certainly owes something to his predecessor, Paul DePodesta, and his underlings, Logan White, Kim Ng and DeJon Watson, it's very tough to kick a guy out the door when he's at the helm of a team with that recent track record.

Which doesn't mean he doesn't scare the bejesus out of me as a Dodger fan at times, but I guess I'd rather hear him say he's not trading the Dodgers core youngsters for an ace (as he did last week) than floating the idea of trading a Kershaw or a Kemp (as he did last winter). (Jay Jaffe)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc, I am growing ever more depressed as an Astros fan. Though we didn't make a stupid trade for a Randy Wolf type like we did last year, the team continues to play ~.500 ball, no more no less, while having an extremely old team and extremely barren farm system. Isn't this team due for a few disastrous seasons, and in the near future?
(Phillip from Sugar Land, TX)
I think the Astros problem is that, if they outperform their expected record, they take it as their true talent level. Then they end up buying pieces and adding to the team, and then end up stuck in the middle again. They never truly progress, but because of the constant tweaking, they never fall apart entirely either. I'm not sure it's quite as bad as being an average team in the NBA, but it doesn't help. (Marc Normandin)
2009-04-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm sort of surprised that there isn't more media coverage of the Dodgers dominance over the past eight games - they are WHIPPING teams and aren't really firing on all cylinders yet. This is the best 1-8 in the NL and Billingsley and Kershaw have been lights out, Broxton has been unhittable; assuming Kuroda comes back strong, they have a solid rotation and depth in McDonald. Thoughts?
(Silv from NY, NY)
They're on my list for this week. My standard line on them has been that I don't think much of Casey Blake, but if he's your eighth-best hitter, you have a lineup. The pitching depth worries me--not a Randy Wolf fan, the back of the bullpen is shaky--but from 1-17 or so, it's a heck of a roster. Best team in that division, especially given the Diamondbacks' problems developing those bats. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-02-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)John, was signing Randy Wolf the right call over aving that money and giving James McDonald a real shot at a rotation spot?
(Gray (Chicago) from Chicago)
If the Dodgers were serious about repeating, they needed one more reliable pitcher in that rotation. I liked it at 5M for one year. (John Perrotto)
2009-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)"The Mets preferred Perez to Randy Wolf, Ben Sheets and the other free agent starters still on the market." Really?
(ssimon from Pelham, NY)
Works for me. I don't believe for a second that Ben Sheets is healthy enough to warrant a deal like what Perez got, and he's the only pitcher close to Perez left out there. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-02-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe-thanks for the chat. Are the Dodgers better off signing Dunn, Hudson and Wolf vs. Manny and Wolf?
(raygu1 from princeton, nj)
Why are they signing Randy Wolf? Why, in fact, do I have so many references to Randy Wolf in my queue? He's a flyball pitcher without the stuff to pull that off, a 6.24 ERA waiting to happen.

The Dodgers have jammed up their roster in a way that makes it hard for them to sign players. Too many roster spots and too much money being wasted on Juan Pierre and Casey Blake and Jason Schmidt. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-12-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is there anyone the Nats should be pursuing?
(Charlie from Bethesda, MD)
If they're intend on spending money where they might get value *and* have someone people might give you good stuff to get for themselves at a trade deadline in the next few years, maybe you give something multi-yeared to Garland or Randy Wolf, or something in a one-year flavor for Bartolo Colon. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why are Astros fans under the false impression they are still in the playoff hunt...with or without this long winning streak?
(Drew from Chicago)
Because that's what the management team has been telling them for months, and that team went out and traded for Randy Wolf and LaTroy Hawkins to reinforce that idea. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Well, does Livan have any trade value, currently?
(Bill Smith from Cleveland)
Randy Wolf brought back a top-ten prospect from a team, so I suppose anything is possible. I'm thinking Ed Wade's in the book, Bill. Call him up. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's the dumbest rumor mongering you've heard thus far?
(Chris from TX)
Probably the Astros being interested in Randy Wolf. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please tell me the Phillies will be agressive and land Sabathia or Bedard and not settle for a mediocre pitcher like Paul Byrd or Randy Wolf this year!
(Ruben Gillbuckle from Philadelphia)
The Phillies don't have near enough to offer for a guy like Sabathia. They'll be in the mix for second-tier bait, but that's it. (Dayn Perry)
2008-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a fantasy player whose not adverse to some risk, what can I expect out of Liriano? What's the scoop? How did others with something similar come back?
(Roger from Pasadena)
Tommy John return is about as predictable as it gets. Most will come back with little or no problem and perhaps a skosh more velocity and less control. A small percentage will see a secondary shoulder problem, like Randy Wolf did last season. These TEND to be minor. I'd expect Liriano to come back well, but I'm very concerned if he gets much above 150 innings. (Will Carroll)

2009-10-21 17:00:00NLCS Game 5Steven, I'm not trying to stereotype here but it I long found that it isn't fair to draw assumptions about Latin players. The language and cultural barriers are real and, many times, the American players and media don't ever really get to know some of these guys. I've heard bad things about Padilla but Randy Wolf, who I really respect, gave him a glowing recommendation when asked by Colletti. (John Perrotto)
2009-10-16 13:00:00NLCS Game Two/ALCS Game Oneccmonter (Waterloo, Canada): What happened to Torre's quick hook? Kershaw was clearly in trouble and Torre has a full stock in the bullpen.

I wrote all about that issue in today's column. Joe wrote his own piece and arrived at completely the opposite conclusion, which should if nothing else stand as a data point the next time the fanboys accuse us of groupthink.

I simply don't think you can look at Kershaw in that situation after three walks, three wild pitches, 31 pitches in the inning and God knows what else running through his head and think that having the platoon advantage against Howard is alone enough to outweigh the information that the rest of the inning has given you. Elbert may not have been the man for the job, but Torre could have brought in Randy Wolf for a cameo while double-switching Orlando Hudson (who pinch-hit after the damage was done) and Ronnie Belliard (who'd just ended the inning). The difference between a 3-1 game and a 5-1 game proved decisive. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-10-15 17:00:002009 NLCS Game One (Phillies/Dodgers)Well, Joe, you got your Randy Wolf appearance. (J.A. Jaffe)
