Born: Aug 22, 1976
A deadline acquisition from the San Diego Padres, Wolf had a fairly successful two months as an Astro. He helped Houston make a late run at the playoffs only to fall short.
During the off-season, the Astros were close to re-signing the free agent when the economy took a nosedive, forcing Houston to withdraw their contract offer before Wolf could agree to it. He signed instead with the Los Angeles Dodgers for 2009.
