X-rays negative for Wolf, MRI coming Monday

Brewers left-hander Randy Wolf was struck above his left hand by a line drive in Sunday’s game against the Astros and forced to make an early exit. 
Wolf was working on a gem, having allowed only five hits and no runs through his first six innings of work, when Astros outfielder Hunter Pence lined a pitch back up the middle leading off the seventh. Brewers head athletic trainer Roger Caplinger came out for a look and Wolf immediately exited. 
He was taken to a local hospital for x-rays, which were negative. Wolf will travel back to Milwaukee for a Monday morning appointment with Brewers head physician William Raasch, who will perform an MRI scan.
The 33-year-old is in the first season of a three-year contract and was working on his second consecutive quality start. He limited the Reds to two runs on five hits six days earlier in Milwaukee, and with only 75 pitches through his first six innings on Sunday, might have had a chance for his first complete game since 2008.
