SHARE Dewayne Wise brought up from AAA Charlotte

Outfielder Dewayne Wise has been brought up to fill the void left by Paul Konerko, who went on the seven-day disabled list Friday with a concussion.

The Sox purchased the contract of Wise from Class AAA Charlotte and transferred left-hander John Danks to the 60-day disabled list.

Wise, 34, was signed as a minor-league free agent on August 3. He hit .161 (5-for-31) in seven games with Charlotte.

Wise batted .262 with three home runs and eight RBI in 56 games with the Yankees this season. He was designated for assignment on July 23.

Wise played in 141 games with the Sox in 2008-09. He famously saved Mark Buehrle’s perfect game on July 23, 2009 vs. Tampa Bay with an over-the-wall catch to prevent a home run by Gabe Kapler in the ninth inning.
