Pirates' Jackson Wolf: Dealt to Pittsburgh
Wolf, Alfonso Rivas and Estuar Suero were traded from the Padres to the Pirates on Tuesday in exchange for Rich Hill and Ji-Man Choi, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Wolf, a 6-foot-7 lefty, is extremely deceptive and boasts an above-average slider, but his fastball averaged 88.9 mph in his lone big-league start earlier this year. The 24-year-old prospect has never pitched at Triple-A, but he's logged a 4.08 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 105:22 K:BB in 88.1 innings across 18 starts this year at Double-A. The Pirates will likely continue developing him as a starter for now, but his below-average fastball velocity limits his long-term upside.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jackson Wolf: Nabs win in MLB debut
Wolf (1-0) earned the win Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk over five innings in a 14-3 win over the Tigers. He struck out one.
Wolf got into the win column in his first MLB start, lasting five innings while striking out only one batter. All of the damage against him came in the second, when he allowed three runs to score as part of a five-hit inning for Detroit. With Michael Wacha (shoulder) expected to miss the rest of July, Wolf could get another go-around in the Padres rotation. However, with a series against the Rangers on the docket, Wolf shouldn't garner much streaming consideration if he takes the mound again.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jackson Wolf: Called up for debut start
Wolf's contract was selected as expected Saturday ahead of his major-league debut against the Tigers.
Wolf, a fourth-round pick in the 2021 Draft, doesn't come with a ton of prospect pedigree, but he does come with strong numbers at the Double-A level this season. In 17 starts, he owns a 3.39 ERA, striking out 31.3 percent of opposing batters while walking just 6.0 percent. The 6-foot-7 sidearmer will skip Triple-A altogether, though it remains to be seen if his funk and deception will continue to outweigh the fact that his fastball sits below 90 mph.... See More ...

Padres' Jackson Wolf: Heads to minors after strong debut
The Padres optioned Wolf to Double-A San Antonio on Sunday.
Wolf bypassed the Triple-A level to make his MLB debut Saturday, earning the win in the Padres' 14-3 victory over the Tigers while allowing three earned runs on six hits and one walk over five innings. Due to an off day this upcoming Thursday, the Padres look content to get by with a four-man rotation for the upcoming week, so Wolf will be the odd man out and will head back to the minors. Wolf or Ryan Weathers could be called up the next time the Padres require a fifth starter Aug. 1, assuming Michael Wacha (shoulder) isn't ready to return from the 15-day injured list by then....

Padres' Jackson Wolf: Could make debut Saturday
Wolf could make his major-league debut for the Padres on Saturday in Detroit, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
The Padres currently don't have a starter listed for Saturday's contest and Wolf was spotted in their clubhouse Friday, which would seem to all but confirm he'll be the guy to take the ball. Wolf has posted a 3.39 ERA and 104:20 K:BB over 85 innings covering 17 starts with Double-A San Antonio this season. It's possible he could make additional starts, depending on the availability of Michael Wacha (shoulder).... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jackson Wolf: MLB debut coming Saturday
Wolf will be called up to make his major-league debut in a start Saturday at Detroit, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
It had already been reported that Wolf was being promoted, but now he's officially locked in as the Padres' starter Saturday. The 24-year-old left-hander has posted a strong 3.39 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 104:20 K:BB in 85 innings (17 starts) this season with Double-A San Antonio and is probably worth an immediate look in fantasy against a Detroit team that ranks 28th in team OPS at .667. Wolf was a fourth-round pick in the 2021 MLB Draft out of West Virginia University.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Jackson Wolf: Missing bats at Double-A
Wolf, 24, has a 4.09 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 36:4 K:BB over his last 22 innings (five starts) for Double-A San Antonio.
The 6-foot-7 southpaw has given up some hard contact, with five balls leaving the yard in those 22 innings, but he is also racking up the strikeouts. Wolf's funky delivery and long extension can cause timing issues for hitters, as was evident in recent dominant outings against Corpus Christi and Northwest Arkansas.... See More ... See Less
