White Sox Sing Outfielder Wise to 1-year contract
CHICAGO (AP)--The Chicago White Sox have agreed to a one-year, $700,000 contract with veteran outfielder Dwayne Wise.

The 34 year old Wise signed with Chicago as a free agent on Aug. 3. He is a career .228 hitter with 30 home runs and 112 RBIs in 546 games over 10 seasons with Toronto, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Florida and the New York Yankees in addition to the White Sox.

Wise preserved Mark Buehrle's 2009 perfect game against Tampa Bay when he made an over-the-wall catch to stop a home run in the ninth inning.
