Outfielder DeWayne Wise has declared free agency rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple A, according to MLB.com's Scott Merkin (via Twitter).
In addition to the catch that saved Mark Buehrle's perfect game, Wise hit .225/.262/.366 in 153 plate appearances for the White Sox this year. The 31-year-old played mostly center and right field. UZR/150 loved his defense in the limited 371-inning sample. Wise has about four years of service time, so a team signing him for 2010 could retain him in 2011 as an arbitration-eligible player.
