Judging by the ESPN average live draft results that show him as a 22nd-round pick, Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Randy Wolf wasn't very much in demand this season. Even now, after he completed a successful April with a 3-1 record, 3.34 ERA and 22 strikeouts, he remains unowned in 75 percent of ESPN leagues. I don't really get it, but based on Wolf's career numbers in May, it's about to get even better.

That's right, the underrated Wolf has a career mark of 20-10 in the season's second month, with a 3.20 ERA and an 8.1 K/9 rate. Those numbers pretty much dwarf what Wolf, who has a 4.12 ERA in his career, has done the other five months. I can't really explain it, and I'm guessing Wolf can't either, but from a fantasy baseball aspect, the month you need to own Wolf is just days away from beginning.

To see who besides Randy Wolf have traditionally posted good numbers in May, you must be an ESPN Insider.
