Wolf lacks a plus pitch, but that has not kept him from being a very effective Friday starter for the Cardinals this season (6-2, 2.42) after two excellent seasons in Louisville's bullpen. The 6-foot-6 lefty sits at 88-91 mph, bumping up to 92-93 when he needs a little extra. His cutter is an average pitch, but its his best offering and he mixes in a fringy slider as well. Wolf doesn't rely on as many changeups as many lower-velo lefties, but it's still an effective fringe-average pitch and he'll occasionally surprise a hitter with a slow, early-count curveball. Wolf is a back-of-the-rotation starter in pro ball. While he doesn't have dominating stuff, he's demonstrated that he's crafty and knows how to set up hitters.
