Wolf confirms deal with Brewers

Last winter, Randy Wolf watched a three-year offer disappear and then had to wait until February to find work. This time, he won’t have to worry. 

Wolf agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the Brewers on Wednesday that according to numerous reports includes a fourth-year club option and guarantees $29.75 million. Yahoo! Sports was first to report the deal.

The Brewers can’t confirm it because Wolf has yet to pass a physical, but Wolf himself went on Sirius XM radio and said he was “excited” to be a Brewer.

Not to mention relieved to have some job certainty.

“It was only natural to be a little bit apprehensive about where the market is considering what happened last year,” he said in the interview. “It was a crazy offseason last year, especially with me.  It made it really easy the way the Brewers came in very aggressive and made it really clear they wanted me there.  So I kind of knew things were going to happen with them.” 

When finalized, it will be the third-richest pitching contract in Brewers history to Jeff Suppan’s four-year, $42 million deal that expires after next season and Ben Sheets’ four-year, $38.5 million deal from 2005-08.
