Brewers finalize Wolf, agree with Counsell


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Randy Wolf has finalized his $29.75 million, three-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, who also agreed to a $2.1 million deal with infielder Craig Counsell.

Wolf, a 33-year-old left-hander, went 11-7 with a 3.23 ERA in 34 starts for the Los Angeles Dodgers last season. The Brewers are desperate for starting pitching help after finishing last season 80-82 and made Wolf their top priority this offseason.

Wolf gets $9.25 million next year and $9.5 million in each of the following two seasons. The deal includes a $10 million club option for 2013 with a $1.5 million buyout.
