DEWAYNE WISE

Freel Wise One former SkyChiefs’ misfortune was another’s fortune.  When Syracuse fan favorite Ryan Freel was placed on the Disabled List this week, after suffering head and neck injuries in a collision with fellow Reds outfielder Noris Hopper, Dewayne Wise was called up to take his spot on the roster.

Wise was hitting .256 with 7 HR, 19 RBI and 8 SB in 44 games with Triple-A Louisville at the time of his promotion.  Dewayne has appeared in 4 games for the Reds so far, but has just one at-bat and is 0-1.

Freel was hitting .252 with 2 HR, 12 RBI and 8 SB in 49 games. Last month the 31-year old Freel signed a two-year extension for 7 million dollars that will take him through the 2009 season.
