Wolcott was a key member of the 1995 "Refuse to Lose" Seattle Mariner team, the first Mariner team to reach the playoffs. He was a late season call-up from the minor leagues in August, where he was most impressive in his first major league start against the Boston Red Sox, the team with which he would pitch his final major league game in 1999. After his season in Japan, he came back to pitch three games in the Oakland Athletics organization in 2001.

Wolcott was forced to retire due to shoulder surgery.[citation needed] After his baseball career ended, he continued his education at Oregon State University, where he majored in mechanical engineering.[1]
