BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles placed left-handed pitcher Randy Wolf on the 60-day disabled list with a torn ligament in his left elbow.
Manager Buck Showalter said that Wolf, who was 2-0 with a 5.28 ERA in five games with the Orioles since signing as a free agent on Aug. 31, felt discomfort in his elbow during the fifth inning of Saturday’s start in Boston.
Baltimore purchased Bill Hall’s contract from Triple-A Norfolk. The 32-year-old Hall, who plays both infield and outfield, will be used to help out in the outfield while Lew Ford recovers from a groin injury.
Hall batted .222 with a home run in seven games with the Orioles earlier this season.
