100 Greatest Phillies: 58 – Randy Wolf

Randy Wolf
Starting Pitcher

Career w/Phillies: 1175 IP / 69-60 / 4.21 ERA / 971 K

His first and final seasons in Philadelphia weren’t good, but everything in the middle was pretty good. Randy Wolf spent eight seasons with the Phillies, making one All-Star team while establishing himself as one of the team’s best arms since Steve Carlton. His best season was 2002, when he finished 11-9 with a 3.20 ERA. He rushed off to a great start in 2003, making that All-Star team with a 10-4 record. He finished 16-10, struggling at the very end to raise his ERA over 4.00. But injuries derailed Wolf, and he never rebounded as a Phillie. He finally came back to his past self with a strong second half in 2008.

Comment: If not for his many arm injuries, Wolf would’ve probably had a better Phillie career. As it stood, Wolf had a solid run with the Phils, throwing more than 150 innings four of his first six seasons. Of course, it was probably that overuse that did him in.
