The Chicago White Sox recently purchased the contract of Charlotte outfielder Dewayne Wise.
Wise was hitting .338 for the Knights, which was the second highest batting average in the International League. Wise has appeared in just six games for the White Sox since being called up, but has yet to get a hit.
The Knights recently received Danny Richar as part of his rehab assignment from Chicago.
Richar had not played at all this season while recovering from a rib injury. Richar appeared in 32 games for Charlotte last season, hitting .346 before being called up to Chicago.
Never miss a local story.
In his first 10 games the season with the Knights, Richar is hitting .184 with one home run and three RBIs.
The White Sox also signed free agent pitcher Scott Sauerbeck to a minor league contract and assigned him to Charlotte. Sauerbeck played in four games with Louisville earlier this season going 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA.
