Four Players Agreed to Minor League Deals

The Phillies have agreed to terms on Minor League contracts with four players, according to a source. The players will have invitations to Spring Training:

  • Outfielder DeWayne Wise, who preserved Mark Buehrle‘s perfect game in July with a leaping catch at the wall in the ninth inning at U.S. Cellular Field, hit .225 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in 142 at-bats last season for the Chicago White Sox. He is a .216 career hitter in seven seasons in the Majors.
  • Infielder Wilson Valdez hit .256 with seven RBIs in 86 at-bats for the New York Mets. He is a career .222 in four seasons in the Majors.
  • Infielder Andy Tracy hit .417 in 12 at-bats for the Phillies.
  • Catcher Paul Hoover had three hits in four at-bats in three games for the Phillies.

I can’t believe the White Sox let Wise go after that amazing catch that put Buehrle in the record books. He may never hit at the MLB level, but he should’ve gotten at least a Rolex from Buehrle for that catch he made. Hopefully, they signed him because Charlie or Milt found a fixable flaw in his swing and are going to give him a chance to make it back to the Bigs.
