Blue Jays Claim Dewayne Wise

Dewayne Wise is heading to Toronto for a third stint with the Blue Jays. The team announced that they have claimed the outfielder off of waivers from the Marlins. He is scheduled to report to Toronto tomorrow, at which point the club will make a corresponding move.

Starting center fielder Colby Rasmus has been dealing with a sore wrist, so the Blue Jays could create 25-man roster space for Wise by placing Rasmus on the 15-day disabled list. They have two open 40-man roster spots, so no one is in danger of losing his spot when Wise arrives.

Wise signed with the Marlins twice this year, first in January, then in June, before they designated him for assignment earlier this week. In 72 plate appearances, he posted a .239/.278/.269 line for Florida, appearing in left and center field. The 33-year-old has a .223/.261/.373 line in a nine-year MLB career that includes one stint with Toronto from 2000-02 and another in 2010.

    This is an outrage! The Wayne Wise isn’t even my friend on Facebook (yet). This sounds like another plot by the liberal media 2 get kids hooked on b-ball (baseball) – a very un-Wise decision indeed.

    I assume he kept the hat.

    Is it just me or does it seem like he has gone from the Marlins to the Jays multiple times this year.

    This might just be what we need for that playoff push!!! Oh wait – scratch that. I am sure Mike McCoy could have just continued filling in?

      On the 15 day as well. Not sure why Mastro couldn’t have gotten the starts and kept McCoy around as the utility guy. I do like Wise starting over McCoy, but, Mastro over them both.

      • Mastro has zero future with this team.

          I disagree, I think he could be a solid 4th OF. Either way, he’s still a kid having a solid season in AAA. What’s the harm in giving him a handful of starts over Dewayne Wise?
