BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Wise is a fan favorite in Chicago—robbing a home run to preserve Mark Buehrle's perfecto in 2009 will do that. He hustles, flashes some leather at all three outfield spots, and hits righties enough to keep his head above the zero WARP mark. In an odd turn of events, he hit an unexpectedly high number of home runs for the Yankees in a very small sample size, giving him a TAv higher than that of Raul Ibanez, who, well, did the same thing on a much bigger stage.
2012 As you read this chapter, you may notice references to the hitter-friendly environment at Triple-A Las Vegas. You may wonder if the extreme skepticism that environment engenders is warranted. Well, consider this: when the Blue Jays re-signed Wise, they sent him to Las Vegas. In 31 games, he had a .338/.382/.549 line with 17 extra base hits. That performance got him cut, and then he caught on with the Marlins, for whom he posted a .217 TAv. His value to the Blue Jays was mostly as a pinch runner and late game defensive replacement. But his value to you is as a human park factor.
2011 Wise is a late-game defensive replacement and nothing more. That he started and finished 23 games—mostly at corners, no less—is just bad baseball. Each of those games was against a right-handed starter, but even against opposite-handed pitchers Wise sports a career .258 OBP. Grant that the second run of DeWayne Wise: Major-League Fourth Outfielder (The Musical) has been dictated in large measure by circumstance and one terrific catch; it is difficult to justify using him as anything other than the 25th man on a roster in moments of dire need. Unwilling to keep him on for even that, Toronto outrighted Wise in November, and the ball-shagger elected to pursue free agency.
2010 On July 23, Wise made the catch of the year. It wasn't the pure best catch you'll ever see, but it involved a long run, a bang into a wall, and a juggle. More important was the circumstance, as it maintained Mark Buerhle's perfect game in the ninth inning. Defense is why Wise is in the big leagues in the first place. He runs well and can play all three outfield positions, but he can't hit lefites at all, while the evidence of his ability to do anything against right-handers is sketchy at best. He'll compete for a back-of-the-bench job in Phillies camp this spring, but whether he makes it or not, he'll always have that catch.
2009 A now-thirtysomething journeyman, Wise’s performance for the White Sox last year was almost an exact repeat of his 175 PA stint for the Braves in 2004, which also ended in a Division Series loss and his last appearance in an edition of BP). In between, he made just 46 major league plate appearances. Wise can hit for some power against righties, steal some bases, and sub at all three outfield positions, but he doesn’t do any of those things well enough to keep a major league job, and he doesn’t do anything else well at all. Nick Swisher had to know the writing was on the wall in Chicago when he was benched in favor of Wise in the ALDS.
2005 Nothing to see here. Career .256 hitter in the minors, very little plate discipline, only quasi-adequate gap power numbers, already 27. Need we pile on?
2003 Wise has been clogging the 40-man roster since the previous administration had the brilliant idea of plucking him out of low-A ball in the 1999 Rule 5 draft. The new brain trust thought it was time to see exactly what they had and gave him a 40-game audition after the All-Star break. What they saw was a brilliant defensive outfielder who isn’t yet worth stashing on the bench for an entire season. Wise is beginning to grasp the strike zone and someday could emerge as a decent reserve on another ball club.
2001 The Rule 5 draft is a good idea at its core, but in execution it's problematic. The idea is to give players trapped in organizations an opportunity to play in the major leagues with teams that want them. Those teams must keep Rule 5 picks on their rosters all season, though, so in practice, players selected in the draft often spend the season as glorified bat boys, their skills deteriorating by the day. Forcing a team to keep a player on its roster for the entire season may do more harm than good to the player, so it may be time to modify the rules surrounding the draft.

DeWayne Wise came off seasons of 496 and 502 at-bats and then, after being selected from the Cubs in the 1999 Rule 5 draft, got only 78 at-bats in 2000, appearing mostly as a pinch runner and defensive replacement. There's simply no way that's beneficial to his development or his career. Wise will play center field for Tennessee this summer; he's a pinch runner prospect.
2000 Yadda, yadda, tools...yadda, yadda, outfielder...yadda, yadda, control of the strike zone...yadda, yadda, the Reds love these guys. Wise has no future in an organization with better players of his ilk both next to him and ahead of him.
1999 Three-sport star in high school who chose the wrong one to pursue. Wise is athletic, has great speed, covers a ton of ground, but he doesn't really hit much and didn't adjust at all in a full season at Burlington. He's only 21 this year and will get more time, but is more likely to wind up someone's Rule 5 pick in the double-A round someday.

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-07-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who is going to stay with the big club, Dewayne Wise or Darnell McDonald?
(Alex from Anaheim)
This probably depends at least somewhat on Brett Gardner's timetable. Wise is the better defender of the two, and McDonald's main skill -- hitting left-handed pitching -- is already covered by Andruw Jones, but McDonald may be less redundant with the other players on the roster. Now that I've talked myself in circles, my tentative guess is that McDonald hangs around. (Daniel Rathman)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesRandom fact #3: Dewayne Wise's home run today was his 16th in the big leagues. They have come off 15 different pitchers who have a combined record of 736-713; the winningest of the bunch being Jeff Weaver with 93. Wise homered off Brian Bannister twice this season. (David Laurila)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesDeWayne Wise gets his revenge on this roundtable with a three-run bomb. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesAnd now Reynolds is discussing bunting techniques. I said this when he was at ESPN...when he's discussing the mechanics of playing baseball, he's excellent. So's Morgan. So's Hershiser on pitching. It's when these guys start talking about value that I grind my teeth. But on mechanics...good stuff.

BTW, you don't bunt with two on and none out in front of Orlando Cabrera and DeWayne Wise. Not when your whole MO is three-run homers. Bad play.
(Joe Sheehan)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesI still don't get the fascination with DeWayne Wise. Did Nick Swisher badmouth Venezuela?

And if you're going to play Wise, doesn't he have to be in center field? This is like the maximum possible error for using these three players.

I really do like Ozzie Guillen as a manager, but this is just inexplicable.
(Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-30 16:30:00Twins/White Sox Play-In GameCaleb, to get DeWayne Wise out. It's very important to have the platoon advantage against DeWayne Wise.

Rather than Jim Thome. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-09-30 16:30:00Twins/White Sox Play-In Game"benrosenberg02 (boston): Why Wise and not Swisher?"

I don't know, and frankly, the whole issue is getting a little weird. The White Sox are playing DeWayne Wise, and using Ken Griffey Jr. in center field, while benching Nick Swisher...and they're eight innings from the playoffs. (Joe Sheehan)
