A's trade Fox to O's

Well, the A's managed to get something for Jake Fox, who was designated for assignment earlier this week --- getting cash and minor league pitcher Ross Wolf from the Orioles. 

Wolf is 27 (only a couple of months younger than Fox) and actually appeared in the majors for Florida in 2007, getting absolutely lit up (14 G, 12.1 IP, 11.68 ERA, 2.19 WHIP), but has been reasonably effective at the AAA level in his career (255.1 IP, 3.81 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, ~2:1 K:BB ratio).  He's having a fine season at AAA-Norfolk with a 2.11 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 38.1 IP with 26 Ks and 15 BBs.  He's nothing more than organizational filler, an emergency quad-A type of guy, but considering the A's could have lost Fox for nothing, it's nice to see something halfway decent in return.
