Ross Wolf was drafted by the Florida Marlins in 2002. Since then he has been making his way through the minor leagues with a goal of reaching the majors. In August of 2007 Ross was called up to the majors and made his first appearence against the Mets on Aug. 11th.

At the end of the 2008 season Ross became a minor league free agent and signed with the Baltimore Orioles. He spent 2009 playing for the Orioles AAA club, The Norfolk Tides. In 2010 he started the new season with the Tides and was having a great year.

On June 22nd he was traded to the Oakland A's for Jake Fox and reported to the Sacramento River Cats, the A's top minor league club. He continued to pitch well there and on July 7th he was called up to Oakland and became the newest member of the bullpen.

At the end of the 2010 season Ross was released by Oakland and once again became a minor league free agent. After being contacted by 10 different teams he signed with the Houston Astros. He pitched all of 2011 for the Oklahoma City Redhawks, the AAA affiliate of the Astros.

In 2012 he resigned with Baltimore. After starting the year with their AA team, the Bowie Baysox, he was released and was once again a free agent. Ross then signed with the Texas Rangers and reported to AA Frisco in the Texas League. Since then he has been bouncing back and forth between there and AAA Round Rock, waiting for a callup from the Rangers.

Shortly after the 2012 season ended, Ross signed with the Rangers for 2013. After bouncing between Frisco & Round Rock for a while Ross was called up to the Rangers in May as a starter and later switched to the bullpen for long relief. He finished the season 1-3 with a 4.15 ERA but he actually better than the numbers show. Down the stretch he was used very little and it is hard to stay sharp under those conditions.

After the season Ross was resigned by the Rangers but was dropped from 40 man roster and assigned to AAA Round Rock. Shortly after that his baseball career changed dramaticaly. He was offered an oppurtunity to play in South Korea for the SK Wyverns and he signed with them. The Korean Baseball season starts on March 29th and will consist of 128 games. We will be bringing you his stats here as the season progresses.

The Rangers have been repeatedly linked to the Cubs for a trade for Matt Garza, but Wolf said he isn't concerning himself with that.

"Only time can tell," Wolf said. "I just go out there and do what I can, which is throw strikes and compete. Just give me the baseball and I will give it all I got."

ARLINGTON -- Ross Wolf emerged from Minor League oblivion to rescue the Rangers' rotation and earn his first Major League victory. With the help of some superb relief work behind him, Wolf also kept the Rangers from being swept by the Athletics.

The 30-year-old righty, making his first big league start, allowed just one run in five-plus innings and the Rangers held on to a 3-1 victory over the Athletics on Wednesday afternoon at the Ballpark in Arlington. The Rangers (30-17) are back to a 5 1/2 game lead in the American League West over second-place Oakland (25-23).

Wolf retired the first nine batters he faced before Coco Crisp led off the fourth with a single. Wolf struck out John Jaso, but Yoenis Cespedes doubled to left, putting runners at second and third. Brandon Moss brought home a run with a sacrifice fly, but Wolf got Josh Donaldson on a grounder to short to end the inning.

Wolf got in trouble in the fifth when Seth Smith led off with a walk and Derek Norris doubled, putting runners on second and third. But Wolf kept them from scoring. Eric Sogard hit a little pop fly into shallow left, and Andrus made a tremendous over-the-head catch with his back to the plate for the first out. Adam Rosales then popped out and Crisp grounded out to end the inning.
