INDIANAPOLIS -- The Brewers are optimistic that veteran free agent pitcher Randy Wolf is moving closer to accepting their three-year offer believed to be worth between $29 and $30 million, a source with knowledge of the talks told CBSSports Wednesday morning.
After cutting ties with Braden Looper, the pitching-thin Brewers are looking for at least a couple of starters. Wolf was non-tendered by the Dodgers following the 2009 season despite going 11-7 with a 3.23 ERA. He worked 214 1/3 innings in 34 starts and racked up an eye-popping total of 16 no-decisions.
Wolf, who also was courted by the Mets, among others, started Game 1 of the NL Division Series for the Dodgers against St. Louis.
