Wise placed on waivers for unconditional release

DETROIT -- The White Sox requested waivers on Dewayne Wise for the purpose of granting the outfielder his unconditional release. The 35-year-old has been on the disabled since June 2 with a strained right hamstring and a right oblique strain.

Wise hit .234 with one homer and three RBIs over 30 games for the White Sox and hit .170 in 16 games as part of a Minor League rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte. The move benefits Wise and affords the White Sox young outfielders greater opportunity to contribute in the final two months.

"We get that with Jordan [Danks] being up here and with [Blake] Tekotte and Jordan, you get the same thing," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "I don't know if it's younger or how you look at it, but it's seeing other guys and seeing what they can do. And it's giving [Wise] another shot to get do something else, too."
