Jays sign Wise to Minor League deal

TORONTO -- It appears the Blue Jays abide by the old sports adage "You can never have enough depth," as they signed outfielder Dewayne Wise to a Minor League contract prior to Saturday's affair with the Yankees.

Wise, who played with the White Sox in 2009 and is most recognized for saving Mark Buehrle's perfect game with a spectacular ninth-inning catch, will begin his term with the Blue Jays organization in Dunedin, Fla., taking part in extended Spring Training.

The 32-year-old journeyman spent three years with the Blue Jays between 2000 and 2002, amassing 134 at-bats over that span. Wise has played with three clubs since: the Braves, Reds and White Sox.
