Ross Wolf ops out, will play in Korea

The Texas Rangers announced Friday that right-handed pitcher Ross Wolf exercised an out in his contract so that he can play with SK Wyverns in the Korean Baseball Organization.

Wolf had cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors on Nov. 4. He re-signed with Texas that same day on a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Wolf, 31, was 1-3 with a 4.15 ERA in 22 appearances (three starts) for the Rangers last season. It was the first time he had pitched in the majors since 2007. He was on the Rangers' 25-man roster for much of the final four months of the season.
