Derek Jeter Praises White Sox Outfielder Dewayne Wise

Yankee shortstop and captain Derek Jeter told reporters Wednesday that he was not surprised to see his former teammate -- and current opponent -- Dewayne Wise succeed with Chicago. Wise collected four hits against New York on Tuesday, spearheading a Chicago win. That came one night after the former Yankee went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs in another White Sox victory.

"He did great for us," Jeter told Dan Hayes of White Sox Insider. "Even when we traded for (Suzuki), first thing I pointed out was how we were going to miss him. He won a lot of games for us. He played well offensively, defensively, stole some bases...I'm happy for him."

Wise has not only excelled in the most recent series. In three games against Toronto last week, he went 4-for-13 with two home runs and six RBIs, and has hit .361 since joining Chicago earlier this month. He is now batting .299 on the season, with six home runs, 17 RBIs, and nine stolen bases.
