Free agent lefthander Randy Wolf has agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers, SI.com has learned.
The Dodgers, acting quickly in a tough free-agent market, are also looking at free-agent pitchers Greg Maddux and Jason Schmidt. Maddux, who is being sought by the Padres as well, is seeking a two-year deal. Schmidt, one of the top two free-agent pitchers (along with Barry Zito) on the market, is expected to draw interest from several teams, including the Mariners and Cubs.
Wolf, 69-60 overall, was 4-0 last year for the Phillies after returning from Tommy John surgery. While several teams showed interest, Wolf, a Canoga Park, Calif., native, made it clear he wanted to pitch for the Dodgers.
It is believed his contract calls for a $9 million option for 2008.
