Outfielder Dewayne Wise, who is part of White Sox history for his game-saving catch at the wall preserving Mark Buehrle’s perfect game, is back with the team after signing a minor league contract Friday. He will report to Class AAA Charlotte. Wise, 34, played in 141 games with the Sox from 2008-09.
“Dewayne was having a good year with the Yankees, and a few games were against us,” general manager Ken Williams said, Wise recently designated for assignment. “We feel he needs a few at bats but at some point he might be part of the equation and help us off the bench.”
In another roster move, the team sent righthanded minor league pitcher Chris Devenski to Houston as the player to be named ater in the trade that brought reliever Brett Myers on July 21. The Sox also sent righthander Matt Heidenreich and lefthander Blair Walters to Houston in that deal.
