Found September 27, 2012 on MLB Injury News:

The Baltimore Orioles are attempting to make the playoffs for the first time in over a decade, but they’ll have to do it without veteran left-hander Randy Wolf.  While Wolf is done for the season, the O’s are hoping to get right-hander Jason Hammel back for the end of the regular season or the start of the playoffs.

  • The Orioles placed Wolf on their 60-day disabled list yesterday after it was discovered the southpaw had sustained an ulnar collateral ligament tear in his elbow.  The injury usually requires Tommy John surgery, a procedure the veteran also underwent in 2005, but nothing has been announced at this point.
  • Though Wolf’s season is over, there’s still a chance Hammel could rejoin the team this year.  The right-hander’s been sidelined with a knee injury for the past two weeks, but he was able to log a successful bullpen session yesterday.  Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Hammel could return in time to be included on the team’s playoff roster.
