The Chicago White Sox have signed outfielder Dewayne Wise to a minor league deal, according to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago. Wise became a free-agent recently after the veteran outfielder declined his outright assignment to the minor leagues, instead being granted his release from the New York Yankees.

The 34-year-old Wise played well in limited time with the Yankees, batting .262/.286/.492 in 63 plate appearances over 56 games (15 starts). The Yankees signed Wise to a minor league deal and definitely got their money's worth; Wise accumulated nearly 1 win above replacement for the team.

In other White Sox news, the team sent minor league pitcher Chris Devenski to the Houston Astros as the player to be named later in the Brett Myers deal.
