The Blue Jays have signed outfielder DeWayne Wise to a minor league deal, according to James Hall of MLB.com. Wise, 32, opted out of his deal with the Phillies on Tuesday.
In 145 plate appearances for Triple A Lehigh Valley, Wise posted a slash line of .272/.317/.515. In his big league career, which has spanned parts of seven seasons, he has hit .216/.255/.380. Wise is known for his outstanding defense and has a career UZR/150 of 9.2 in the outfield.
Finally, the last step towards Ricky Romero throwing a perfect game.
Thank God it wasn’t the White Sox.
Not a terrible pickup I suppose, although I can’t image where they are going to put him. 4 of the 5 outfielders in AAA Las Vegas are hitting over .300 so this is kind of a headscratcher in my opinion..
