“I won't be able to pitch until 2014, and yes, I will pitch in 2014,” Wolf wrote.
Dr. Lewis Yocum will perform the procedure on Wolf on Oct. 30 in Los Angeles. As you can tell from his email to reporters, Wolf is planning on returning to pitch in 2014.
Wolf spent a majority of the 2012 season with the Milwaukee Brewers, maintaining an ERA and WHIP of 5.69 and 1.574 over 25 appearances, including 24 starts. The Brewers ultimately released Wolf in late August, and he went on to sign with the Baltimore Orioles. The 36-year-old made five appearances, including two starts, for the O’s, allowing nine runs on 17 hits and seven walks with eight strikeouts over 15 1/3 innings.
Wolf has a career ERA of 4.20 over 14 seasons at the major league level.
