Randy Wolf has done a vast amount of travelling this season but none of which he would have wanted after he signed for his fifth MLB organisation since Spring Training.

On the Move

Wolf put pen to paper on Saturday for the Los Angeles Angles and agreed to a minor-league contract which assigned him to Triple-A outfit Salt Lake Bees.

The experienced starting pitcher had previously been on the books this year at Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, Miami Marlins and Baltimore Orioles before joining the Angels.

According to Yahoo’s MLB player statistics record, Wolf made six appearances, four as a starter, for the Marlins this season in the Majors. He achieved a 1-3 record with a 5.26 ERA including 19 strikeouts from 25 2/3 innings pitched.

The lefty did not make a single MLB appearance for the other three clubs he has signed for this year.

Injury Woes

The pitcher’s career has been plagued by injury as the 37-year-old has needed two separate Tommy John surgeries, the second ruled him out for the whole of the 2013 season.

Wolf enjoyed a fruitful start to his baseball career and made the All-Stars in 2003 while at the Philadelphia Phillies. announced the signing on Sunday and stated Wolf is unlikely to be promoted to the Angels roster this year unless injury strikes their current pitching staff.

Unique record

If Wolf was to make his debut for the Angels, they would be the ninth Major league side he had played for since making his debut in 1999 with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Octavio Dotel holds the record for most MLB franchises played for with a staggering 13 different teams.

A World Series winner in 2011 with St Louis Cardinals, Dotel is currently a free agent and his last MLB appearance was for the Detroit Tigers last season.

Assuming Los Angeles Angels’ bullpen stays fit and healthy Wolf will attempt to lift the Salt Lake Bees off the foot of the Pacific Coast Southern division in the Triple-A leagues.

The Bees possess a 45-63 season record and are a massive 14.5 games behind leaders Las Vegas 51s.
