Left handed pitcher Randy Wolf did not pitch in 2013. The 37-year-old wants to continue his career and there are reportedly multiple teams willing to offer the 132 game winner a contract.
Except Wolf wants a guaranteed spot on a major league roster.
Free agent LHP Randy Wolf has multiple offers from clubs, but is looking for a guaranteed roster spot.

Wolf’s request is not likely to be accommodated by many, if anyone. He posted a 5.65 ERA over 157 2/3 innings between Milwaukee and Baltimore in 2012 and has for the most part been clinging to a end of the rotation spot with multiple teams over the last decade.
A year removed from Tommy John surgery, expect Wolf to throw another time or two before accepting a incentive laden deal.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Milwaukee Brewers were busy on the final day of the Winter Meetings, making three selections in the Rule 5 Draft on Thursday morning.
In the Major League phase, Milwaukee selected left-handed pitcher Wei-Chung Wang from the Pirates organization. The 21-year-old cost 50,000 to select and must stick with the Brewers on the 25-man roster for the entire 2014 season or be offered...
Corey Hart is a Seattle Mariner and with that signing the dream of the baby Brewers who led Milwaukee to prominence died. No more Prince, no more Hart, Weeks is something and Braun sold his soul. The dream is over. It's not that Hart left (because that contract Seattle gave him is probably dumb) it's that I don't even know who this team wants to be anymore. Like I don...
2013 Record: 74-88, 4th NL Central
2014 Prediction: 4th NL Central
The Milwaukee Brewers, who finished 4th in the NL Central, finished off the season with a losing record, going 74-88 due to their injury prone roster, which consist of Corey Hart, Mat Gamel, and Taylor Green. All of which were sidelined early in the season, two of which were injured before the 2013 season could start...

Rick Reilly, the writer for ESPN.com, recently caused a lot of conversation with his piece, "Guilt by Association." And the conversation is understandable because the piece was all about newly elected managers, Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony LaRussa getting a pass into the Hall of Fame because "the three managers being inducted oversaw at least 34 players who'...
The Miami Marlins are on a mission to bulk up their infield with the additions of Rafael Furcal and Garrett Jones.
They’ve taken a look at guys like veteran Mark Ellis and even Yuniesky Betancourt. Now they’re currently involved in a trade rumor that happens to surround Betancourt’s former teammate in Milwaukee, Rickie Weeks.

Wei-Chung Wang was drafted by the Brewers in the Rule 5 draft.
The 2013 Rule 5 draft is underway, and the Pittsburgh Pirates surprisingly lost Wei-Chung Wang to the Milwaukee Brewers. The move wasn’t expected for the reason that Wang has only pitched as high as the GCL. It also wasn’t expected because Wang signed his contract in October 2011. Most players from the draft are high...
