In a follow-up story from last night, the Houston Astros announced yesterday afternoon that they had acquired left-handed pitcher Randy Wolf from the San Diego Padres in exchange for right-handed pitcher Chad Reineke. The announcement was made by General Manager Ed Wade.
"Randy is an experienced starter and a great competitor," said Wade. Wolf is 6-10 with a 4.74 ERA in 21 starts for the Padres in 2008. His 21 starts are tied for the Major League lead this season. He will start for the Astros on Sunday at Miller Park against the Milwaukee Brewers.
