Wise leaves the game

Dewayne Wise left Monday’s game at Comerica Park in the bottom of the fifth inning after the White Sox center fielder made a spectacular diving catch of a Ramon Santiago line drive in right-center. Wise’s grab made it possible for Gavin Floyd to stay in the game and remain in line for the victory over Detroit.

Santiago connected with runners on first and second and one out, and Wise literally out-ran the baseball to prevent extra bases. Wise immediately winced in pain after making the tumbling catch, apparently favoring his right shoulder where he landed. Wise flipped the ball to Jermaine Dye, who threw the ball into the infield, and then called for help from the dugout. After manager Ozzie Guillen and head athletic trainer Herm Schneider checked out Wise, he left the game and was replaced by Brian Anderson.

Wise finished 1-for-3 at the plate on Monday.

I hope that Wise will be okay. Good luck to him.

Yeah, hoping he’s okay. That was a pretty amazing catch, though; he definitely deserves the credit for it.
