Sox Win Game, Lose Player

Wise likely out for 6 to 8 weeks

His "game-saving catch" may put him on Ozzie Guillen's A list, but more significantly, it'll put him on the DL, benched for up to 2 months.

White Sox center fielder Dewayne Wise separated his right shoulder in Monday's 10-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

With two on and one out in the bottom of the fifth, the Sun-Times reports, Detroit looked to get back into the game as Ramon Santiago laced a liner toward right-center that had extra-base hit written all over it.

Wise made the diving catch but was in pain instantly, grimacing after throwing the ball to the infield.

‘‘He’s gone,’’ Guillen said after his team’s third consecutive win.  ‘‘He started swinging the bat pretty good, he started to play better. It’s a shame, but things happen. I feel sorry for the kid, but you’ve got a job to do. You’ve got to move on.’’
