Wise close to starting rehab assignment

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said injured outfielder Dewayne Wise is close to a Minor League rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte, and it could happen sometime in the next few days. Wise has been on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring since June 2 but was on the field at U.S. Cellular on Tuesday.

"He was just out there earlier and he looked good," Ventura said. "It's one of those where you go with how he's feeling, and he said he's feeling a lot better."

Chicago has managed without its backup outfielder, calling up Jordan Danks from Charlotte and finding some playing time for Casper Wells.

"The move right now is to get Dewayne healthy and see where we go from there," Ventura said. "But we have had some guys to mix and match in there, which has been great for Casper and Jordan."
