HOUSTON -- Through two injury rehab games with Triple-A Charlotte, Dewayne Wise is 1-for-7 with a triple and a run scored. But there is no rush for the veteran outfielder, who has been on the disabled list since June 2 with a strained right hamstring, to return.
"You like everything in the toolbox when they come up," said manager Robin Ventura of Wise. "It's a health thing."
Ventura lent his support to Jordan Danks, who replaced Wise on the roster, despite Danks being picked off second to end Saturday's loss. It was a case of the young man trying too hard to make something happen.
