The Toronto Blue Jays have signed left-handed pitcher Randy Wolf to a minor-league contract, Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi has confirmed.

Word of this signing was first reported by Jeff Fletcher of the Orange Country Register.

The 38-year-old played last season for the Miami Marlins, recording a 5.26 ERA with 19 strikeouts and six walks in 25.2 innings pitched spread out over six appearances.

Wolf returned to the Majors last season after sitting all of 2013 out recovering from Tommy John Surgery.

The 15-season veteran should add much needed starting depth to a Blue Jays pitching staff that was rocked with word last week that 23-year-old right-hander Marcus Stroman would be forced to miss all of the 2015 season after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament during fielding practice.
