The Fish inked 37 year old lefty Wolf, who was working in the minors after a second TJ operation, a month ago after Jose Fernandez went down. The 13 year veteran has faced the Bucs 20 times during his career, going 9-4 with a 4.43 ERA.
The Lineup: Gegory Polanco RF, Starling Marte LF, Cutch CF, Gaby Sanchez 1B, Josh Harrison 2B, Jordy Mercer SS, Pedro Alvarez 3B, Chris Stewart C and Morton P.
