Phillies place Wolf on 15-day DL

PHILADELPHIA -- Left-hander Randy Wolf was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, even though the team hadn't seen the results of Monday's MRI.

Still, they had seen enough.

Right-hander Amaury Telemaco was recalled from Triple-A Scranton to replace Wolf on the roster. Telemaco, designated for assignment on Wednesday, cleared waivers early Monday and will rejoin the team in Seattle.

Wolf fought through six innings on Saturday despite feeling discomfort in his elbow early in the game and in the days leading up to the start.

He didn't tell manager Charlie Manuel or pitching coach Rich Dubee before Saturday because he wanted to see how his elbow would respond during the game.

Rookie Rob Tejeda will start in Wolf's place on Friday.

Wolf will hope for the best.

"I just have to take it day by day," Wolf said on Sunday. "I don't want to presume anything or jump to conclusions. I'm trying to take the side of caution and do things right."

Is surgery his biggest fear?

"It is and it isn't," Wolf said. "If the worst-case scenario comes down to that, it's not like I'm the only guy that's ever had it done, and I'm some unlucky soul. I've been fortunate. I'm basically prepared for anything. That's the way you have to be."

Signage: Philadelphia signed 13 draft picks on Monday, bringing the total to 14. They signed top pick Mike Costanzo last week.

The players who signed are: Davis Blaine (6th round), Jermaine Williams (7th), Joshua Outman (10th), Matt Olson (13th), Michael Zagurski (12th), Matt Edwards (16th), Ronald Hill (17th), Darren Byrd (18th), Aaron Rawl (21st), Joseph Frazee (25th), Brett Dalton (26th), John Blanton (47th) and Tyler Gooch (50th).
